Silverstone’s Poison Frog

Silverstone's Poison Frog

Unlike the gray or blackish-colored flesh of most Dedrobates and Phyloobates, the Silverstone’s poison frog has pinkish white flesh when freshly skinned.

The flesh of freshly skinned specimens of Silverstone’s poison frog is pinkish white, more like the usual condition in Colostethus than the gray or blackish-colored flesh of most Dendrobates and Phyllobates.

Melanophores are present, albeit sparse, on blood vessels and muscle fascia at all levels.
