Poison dart frogs?! Please keep the lid on that tight.

No worries, they're only poisonous if they eat a specific type of beetle. Being captive bred they should be no problem, thats the bonus all of the wonderful color without the death .

That's a relief, but I foresee many pranks being played. Go ahead and tape the Discovery Channel episode about the frogs and then chase people around with your frogs.

IIRC poison dart frogs are only actually poisonous if you place them in your mouth. I believe their "poison" is secreted onto their skin as a self defense mechanism.

You put a frog in front of yourself that looks like candy and tell me you wouldn't put it in your mouth...

I thought so.

They need to eat insects that eat plants that are high in alkaloids to be poisonous. Lots and lots and lots of pranks, I was thinking something like showing of the frog and acting like I licked it and keeling over a few minutes later. Mean? Kinda. Funny? Most definitely!
