How do dart-poison frogs inject their poison into their enemies?
Frogs don’t inject poison. The poison just oozes from special glands in their skin. All frogs have poison glands. In most cases, the poison just tastes bitter or irritates the skin of animals that try to nab them. But the poison in a few dart-poison frogs is deadly! In some parts of South America, people take poison from a dart-poison frog and use it on the tips of their hunting darts. Then they shoot the darts into other animals to kill them quickly. I guess you could say that’s injecting frog poison. But the frog isn’t doing it–people are.
