Project Description

Phyllobates terribilis, or the Golden Poison Dart Frog, is one of the most toxic poison dart frog known in existence. Only 200 micrograms (roughly the equivalent of two grains of table salt) of deadly batrachotoxin this organism produces serves as a lethal dose for an adult human. This life-cycle poster depicts the maturation of Phyllobates terribilis over their life-time while focusing on the organisms; toxic quality as a function of their development.
