Did you know that poison dart frogs start secreting poison when they are just tadpoles? In this video museum educator Lauren Kashan explores the fascinating world of poison dart frogs and their unique survival strategies. These tiny amphibians have developed an incredible parenting tactic: feeding their babies poisonous eggs, which provide essential defenses against predators. As the baby tadpoles grow, they start to secrete this poison, bolstering their own safety. Join us as we dive into their extraordinary journey, from tadpole to fully fledged froglet, witnessing the development of legs and the emergence of vibrant blue coloring.
