Hi everyone Frog boy here!

As we all know that frogs are friendly and kind creatures especially in our farm. =) But there’s a new species of frog found at the Peruvian Cloud Forest! It is said to have spines on its head and it is poisonous which would cause extreme pain!

The poison is more deadly than the secretions of a pit viper, and one of the discoverers, Carlos Jared of the Instituto Butantan in Sao Paulo found out the hard way. While collecting C. greeningi he got a spine in his hand: intense, radiating pain followed for the next five hours. It is one of the most venomous frogs!
