I don’t know why I had one, my wife nearly killed me when she found out what it was when I brought it home when we were in Columbia.
I wouldn’t recommend this guy to anyone but the most experienced handlers, but he is so cool to look at.
I guess I liked the stories I heard when I was backpacking on the pacific Columbia coast, and I had to have one. This frog could literally kill anything it came into contact with including humans, and other animals.
The natives would catch the frog between sticks, and then hold him near a fire. When the frog started to stress he leaked the poison from his skin. These drops are put on the head of poison darts or arrows, and then used to hunt prey. It was crazy to watch, these darts could bring down just about anything.
