Oophaga pumilio

The strawberry poison frog, or strawberry poison-dart frog, is a species of frog found in Central America. It is common throughout its range, which extends from eastern central Nicaragua through Costa Rica and northwestern Panama. The species usually lives in humid lowlands and premontane forest. However, large populations also fine shelter in disturbed areas such as plantations.

The strawberry poison frog is most famous for its widespread variation in coloration. That’s because this frog displays approximately 15–30 color morphs. While not the most poisonous of the dendrobatids, is the most toxic member of its genus.

Tiny and bright, these frogs perch on dewy beaches. Their jewel-tone colors warn predators of their poison. Meanwhile, their chromatic complexity is a feast for the eyes.
