How many frogs are poisonous?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are close to 5000 species of frogs and toads, and nearly all of them secrete some form of toxin or irritant to keep other animals from eating them. Most are harmless to humans, but there are some, such as poison dart frogs and cane toads, that are incredibly poisonous.

    Adding to the above answer, the skin of some frogs is so toxic that it will kill anything that tries to bite it. Only 1/ 100,000 of a gram of skin poison from one species is enough poison to kill a man. Luckily, the poison cannot permeate the skin, but if you have an open cut there will definitely be some consequences. The poison from certain frogs is so deadly that tribes dip their arrows in frog poison to make them deadly weapons.
