The Dyeing Poison Frog, Dendrobates tinctorius, was so named because early explorers incorrectly thought the natives used it to make blue dyes.  Its bright colors, called aposematic coloration warns predators that its skin is poisonous.  The Dyeing Poison Frog, or Poison Dart Frog, is native to Guiana, French Guiana, Surianam, and Brazil.
