Blue Poison Dart Frog (Dendrobates tinctorius “azureus”)

Originally its own species, recent genetic work has shown that the blue poison dart frog is most likely a color morph of D. tinctorius, or the dyeing dart frog.

Scientists believe poison dart frogs gain their toxicity from arthropods they eat in the wild, since frogs in captivity never develop toxicity, and wild-caught frogs eventually lose their toxicity after being kept in captivity.

Had a little obsession with drawing poison dart frogs last week and have been learning a lot about the species and morphs! There are so many. I hope to draw more after I get some other art stuff out of the way.
