Oophaga

Oophaga is a genus of poison-dart frogs containing 9 species, many of which were formerly in the Dendrobates genus.[1] The frogs are distributed in Central and South America, from Nicaragua through the Colombian El Choco to northern Ecuador (at elevations below 1,200 m (3,900 ft)).

Etymology[edit]

Oophaga, Greek for "egg eater" (oon, phagos),[2][3] is descriptive of the tadpoles' diet.[4][5] The larvae feed exclusively on unfertilized eggs supplied as food by the mother.[6]
