Poison Dart Frogs: Dendrobates auratus

Carved by hand entirely from tagua nut and colored with India ink, this black and green toned poison dart frog figurine seems to be alive in a typical pose as found within its tropical forest environment.

Expertly captured by its artisan carver, in the wild this poison frog is a jewel on the forest floor. Scientists believe the toxicity is generated from the ants which make up its primary diet.
