A Multitude of Morphs: Harlequin Dart Frogs - Pictured here is the Koi morph. These are Harlequin Poison Dart Frogs (Oophaga histrionica, Oophaga sylvatica - two "different" [this is debated] species). These creatures come in a multitude of color morphs depending on the specific valley within their native region they hail from. Amazingly, the various color morphs can be found surprisingly close to one another, with different colored populations as near as adjacent hillsides!

The lizard is so reclusive and rare that scientists have a hard time even estimating what the total population of the species may be. -- Find articles on #Adventure #Travel , #Outdoor Pursuits, and #Extreme Sports at http://adventurebods.com
