Phyllobates bicolor are inhabitants of the tropical rain forests.
Phyllobates bicolor is typically golden-yellow in color and has fl flecks on its hind legs.
The batrachotoxins secreted by Phyllobates bicolor are especially valuable for medical science and the study of anesthetics, muscle relaxants, cardiac stimulants, and the control of rapid or irregular heartbeats (Badger et al, 1995).

 Poison Dart Frogs - Phyllobates terribillis
Phyllobates terribilis is truly an outstanding terrarium animal.
Phyllobates terribilis make great frogs for keeping in groups, and should be considered by any one who is trying to set up a tank with more than one species of dart frogs, since they seem to often do well in the presence of other dart frogs.
Although the froglets of the Phyllobates family are generally quite small when they emerge, they grow quickly, and are able to eat considerably larger prey than similarly sized Dendrobates frogs.

Die Systematiker haben mit viel Fleiß aus der ehemals recht übersichtlichen Familie Dendrobatidae mit etwa 140 Arten in den drei Gattungen Dendrobates, Phyllobates und Colostethus nun eine um die 200 Arten umfassende Familie in neun Gattungen geschaffen.
Angehörige der Gattungen Aromobates (zwei Arten), Mannophryne (elf Arten) und Nephelobates (neun Arten) haben aber mit den eigentlichen Pfeilgiftfröschen — Dendrobates und Phyllobates — nur wenige Gemeinsamkeiten.
Sie zeichnen sich durch ihre Warnfarben, recht starke und komplexe Hautgifte, Spezialisierung auf sehr kleine Futterinsekten (vor allem Ameisen, die reich an Alkaloiden sind), Tagaktivität und das Fehlen eines Amplexus aus.
