Poison Dart Frogs
These spectacularly colored frogs are native to Neotropical rain forests in many parts of the world. They lose their toxicity when kept in captivity. Titles in the growing Reptile and Amphibian KeeperĀ's Guides series present useful facts and expert guidance to owners of snakes, lizards, frogs, and other amphibians. Readers are advised on all aspects of ownership, from selecting good specimens and determining sex to breeding, feeding, providing correct housing, and health care. Animals are described as they exist in their natural environment, and advice is given on ways of mirroring aspects of nature to help animals thrive in captivity. Books are heavily illustrated with color photos.
