Watch out for colourful frogs! Their elaborate designs and hues are deliberately ostentatious to ward off potential predators, a tactic called aposematic coloration. Dendrobatids include some of the most toxic animals on Earth. The two-inch-long (five-centimeter-long) golden poison dart frog has enough venom to kill 10 grown men.
