The different species vary in color and size. Most species are bright orange, yellow, green, or red.
In each species of the poison dart frog, once the tadpoles hatch, the parents carry them on their backs and deposit them in a pool of water or in the middle of a water-filled Bromeliad plant, the leaves of which are cup-shaped. These leaves capture the water of the rainforest and provide the perfect habitat for these developing young. How did these frogs know to do this? Simple, God designed them with that knowledge.
