The Golden Poison Frog or golden dart frog is a dangerous epidemic on the Pacific Coast of Columbia. The adults are brightly colored; however, they lack the dark spots present on most frogs. The frog's color pattern is aposematic, which warns the prey of its toxicity. The frog has small adhesive disks on its toes, which aid the climbing of plants.

It also has a bone plate in it’s lower jaw, which presents the appearance of having teeth. These frogs also range in color. They can be mint green, yellow and orange. The skin is poisonous. The poison prevents it’s victim’s nerves from transmitting impulses, which can lead to heart failure.
