The Blue Poison Dart is a 're-do' from an earlier drawing. Poison darts have always been a favorite subject of mine, both to seek out (I basically went to Costa Rica to see some in the wild) as well as illustrate. Their colors are incredibly intense and lovely. The color blue in most animals, apart from some birds, is fairly rare for land animals. I don't know of any other amphibians that have the same amount and intensity of blue as the appropriately named Dendrobates azureus
The Blue Poison Dart Frog is a mid-sized frog weighing about 3 grams and length ranging from 1-1.5 inches. The frog is brightly colored which serves as a warning to would-be predators of its poisonous properties. The tiny frog’s skin is covered with a myriad of glands that secrete alkaloid poisons capable of paralyzing, even killing predators.
