Poison Dart Frog


San Diego Reptile Super Show 2010 2

It’s a cold blooded paradise; the San Diego Reptile Show has once again come to the San Diego Concourse, the creatures mentioned above are all safely tucked away and packaged into cups and enclosures.


Poison Frogs & Their Vivaria

These diminutive creatures (very seldom more than five centimeters) are found in Central American and South American rain forests. Their diet in the wild consists of ants, termites, small spiders, and other small insects. These incredible frogs are diurnal and require little as far as care and maintenance. If you were considering a vivarium I would personally encourage anyone to obtain these animals. As they will make a great addition to and add colors to your lushly planted tank.


Poisonous Snakes and Science! 2

As I stated earlier in my Venom overview piece there is a large difference between Venom and Poison. This is a fact which the reporter failed to look into as they state “poisonous species of amphibians and reptiles inhabiting Bulgaria” and “Sofia presents the most interesting poisonous snakes.” There are NO poisonous snakes never have been and most likely never will. They then make a statement referring to data regarding the lethal dose for humans. For those who are unaware this is typically attributed to what is known as the LD50 study which means exactly this. A toxin is given to a certain amount of lab animals typically mice when it comes to snake venom. When enough toxin is injected to cause a 50% death rate you get the LD50 result.
