Nature's Warning Signs

When something in nature is poisonous, it usually has some sort of warning sign. For instance, poison arrow frogs from the rainforests are brightly colored. This lets other animals know how poisonous they are. These small frogs are so deadly that one drop of their poison can kill a human being! There are over 170 different kinds of poison arrow frogs and each one has a bright splash of color like red, yellow green or blue.
