Blue Pangan Poison Arrow Frog
Also known as Harlequin Poison Dart Frogs (Oophaga histrionica), the Pangan Poison Arrow Frog exists in the forests of ProAves’ Pangan Reserve, in south-west Colombia, which WLT helped extend in 2009.
Harlequin Poison Dart Frogs come in a multitude of color morphs, with various color morphs found surprisingly close to one another, including different colored populations as near as adjacent hillsides.
These types of frogs are known as “obligate egg-feeders.” Basically, once the mother frog gets her tadpoles into a safe little puddle of water, she lays unfertilized eggs which the tadpoles can feed on until they are ready to metamorphose and leave their temporary home.
