Beautifully done. What must one do to become poisoned? Just touch it??
@mlorenz replied: Yes, you just need to touch it. The poison is absorbed through your skin and especially if you have any small cuts etc. This frog is not as toxic as others found in different countries though and will most likely only make you feel sick, cause swelling.

These little guys are so difficult to photograph, I didn't get any photos of them on last years trip that I was satisfied with. This year I had much more luck :-D

Strawberry Poison-Dart Frog

Costa Rica

Also known as the Blue Jeans Frog, they are the second most toxic frog in Costa Rica and they grow to approximately 17.5–22 mm in standard length. They are common throughout their range, which extends from eastern central Nicaragua through Costa Rica and northwestern Panama. The species is often found in humid lowlands and premontane forest, but large populations are also found in disturbed areas such as plantations.
