The Tennessee Aquarium has several species of dart frogs on display. Yellow-banded poison dart frogs, Dendrobates leucomelas, are sometimes called bumblebee dart frogs. These colorful frogs are amazing creatures to watch. These amphibians are known as dart frogs because indigenous people use the frog's poison for blow darts and arrow poison. All wild dart frogs secrete toxins through their skin. However, captive-hatched frogs and wild ones that have been in captivity for an extended time do not exhibit this behavior. Yellow-banded dart frogs feed mostly on ants in the wild; this is where they acquire their skin toxin.
