According to foreign media reports, scientists have recently discovered a new variety poisoned arrow frogs, small enough to put the nail cover. Poison Arrow Frog named because there are toxic, and many poisoned arrow frog species are endangered species, they live mainly in Central and South America.
Poison Arrow Frog color is very bright, which is to scare off predators. They can secrete toxins, hunters will these toxins painted on the bow. Hunters have collected over the other poison frog toxins painted on their weapons, but should not used this toxin new species.
In Panama Poison Arrow frog discovered this new species is only 12.7 mm long, body called mini. Poison Arrow Frog smooth skin and unique sounds show it differs from other animals. Researchers are not sure why this Poison Arrow Frogs will look like this.
One of the study’s authors, Andrew Crawford in “National Geographic” the journal said: “We have yet to begin to analyze this new breed frog toxins.” It’s such a toxin is called andinobates geminisae, in 2011 was the first gathering of people . Since then, scientists have been studying this frog is new varieties, and tested its DNA sequence.
Although researchers have seen this frog, but it was not clear which in the end is not part of another similar species. Researchers know little about this frog, because this frog found only in a small area, so it is easy for their survival threatened. Scientists have proposed a plan to protect it, for example, put it in captivity for breeding, so you can protect amphibians from disease and habitat change damage.
