World’s most toxic frog gets new reserve.


Posted By: Global Wildlife

Touching a wild golden poison frog could kill you within minutes: in fact, a single golden poison frog, whose Latin name Phyllobates terribilis is even more evocative than its common one, is capable of killing 10 humans with its one milligram dose of poison. Yet the deadly nature of this tiny frog has not stopped it from nearing extinction. The Colombian NGO ProAves and partners have helped establish a 50 hectare (124 acre) reserve in the Chocó rainforest.
