The Loving Poison Dart Frog

On today’s Creation Moments Minute, see the loving side of the frog whose skin is so poisonous, Indians in Panama and Columbia use it to make lethal darts.

The bright orange and deep blue skin of the poison dart frog serves to warn predators that it is best left alone and its poisonous skin untouched. Although the frog is deadly, it’s one of the most loving parents in the entire amphibian world. The female lays about a dozen eggs which are watched by both parents until the tadpoles emerge. The mother returns to each tadpole on a regular schedule to lay infertile eggs for the growing youngster to eat.

Whether the parents do this out of love or programmed instinct, we must still find a “Programmer” – and that takes us back to the Creator once again. Such wisdom cannot be said to come from nowhere.
