Yellow-banded poison arrow frogDendrobates leucomelas
Yellow-banded poison arrow frogs are easily recognized by their vibrant colours.
Length: 4 cm
Females tend to be slightly larger than the males, but otherwise, little in their appearance can be used to determine the sex of the species.
These frogs have a bright yellow colouration with varying numbers of broad black stripes and/or spots that extend over the whole body. Some morphs are orange in colour, and variations exist. Like with most poison dart frogs the colour serves as a warning to potential predators.
