Blue Poison Frog

Dendrobates tinctorius
 (formerly Dendrobates azureus)

Blue dart poison frogs grow to approximately 1 to 1 ¾ inches in length. They are active during the day and can be found hiding among boulders and debris near streams; however, they lack toe webbing and are poor swimmers, so they are rarely found in the water.

Size: 1 to 1 ¾ inches
 Range: Suriname
 Habitat: Near small streams in remnant jungle stands
