I hand drew these blue poison arrow frogs, also called the blue poison dart frog and okopipi. In Latin, it goes by Dendrobates Azureus.

This pattern features tiny male and female blue poison dart frogs in their lapis lazuli glory, with handwritten notes about the species.

  • These gorgeous frogs are only about 2" (up to 4.5 cm) long. That's small enough to be eaten by some large spiders!
  • The female is slightly longer than the male and has more rounded suction cups on her fingertips.
  • They are one of several different vividly colored species of "poison arrow" or "poison dart" frogs, so called because their skin toxins are used in blowpipes by the Choco Indians of Colombia, South America.
  • Did you know that only the wild adult blue poison dart frogs have toxins in their skin? That's because the toxins come from the insects they eat in the wild, and those insects are not part of the diets of the adults in captivity or the baby tadpoles. Why are the insects all full of poisons, you ask? Because they eat plants with poisonous alkaloids. Doesn't that seem to validate the old saying, "You are what you eat?"
  • Dendrobates azureus is only found in Suriname, according to the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History.

telden says: Thank you, rhondadesigns! I had such fun with this one, and it was easy to be inspired. This seems to be frog season where we are. We get a lot of tree frogs chirping/croaking up a storm. I just saw my first "red leg" on our lawn the other day. Boy, can those critters jump! And are they ugly!
