The golden poison frog is considered one of the most poisonous animals in the world. One frog holds sufficient venom to kill 10 adults. So far there hasn’t been any information shared on how many people have died from an encounter with a poison dart frog throughout history. However it's clear that it’s venom makes it one of the global’s deadliest animals.
The indigenous people of Colombia used to tip their darts and blowguns with its venom before hunting. The golden poison frog keeps its toxins in glands beneath its skin, so eat a bit of one and it’s all over.
