Poison dart frog


One of the benefits of taking a wildlife tour with a local guide is that  they can spot animals that an untrained person would never see.  Also, if there is a poison dart frog, they will pick them up for photographs, assuming that they don't have any cuts on their hands.

We have new photos of the colonial architecture of Grenada, Nicaragua posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.

What a tiny little thing. I remember when a guide told Julie and I that a caterpillar was poisonous.

I have heard of them but thought they would be much bigger than that. I wonder if it is full grown. It looks cute, not dangerous. But that color should be the warning, right?

I'm glad that the guide handled the frog rather than you!

What an interesting little critter Dave..so tiny and yet so poisonous, you wouldn't want to be without an experienced guide!

I'm glad the hand is included to give perspective. Great shot.

I would have never guessed any danger in that tiny frog...
