Do TONS of research, and I hope you know they are one of the most deadly animals.

Bigappleherps has a Green and black poison dart frog and a Strawberry poison arrow frog. Be weary, the prices ain't cheap. And never, EVER handle one.

My Serpentine Mind, You must be kidding us! Please!

If your not joking then I would suggest you do a bit more research your self.




But to Chulainn, You do need to research a lot first or you will buy a really special animal and it will die.

In the wild you mean? It's a defense mechanism. The colours are a warning, this should deter potential predators and part of the reason dart frogs are awake during the day, they won't get eaten.

A WC is more likely to have diseases. Less likely to be so bold aswell. Or so I would imagine.

I try to avoid buying WC stock... but to CB you gotta start with some WC frogzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
