Phylobates terribilis no longer the most toxic animal on earth?
#1
This article describes Pacific Northwest newts as twice as toxic as the golden dart frog.
Very interesting how they're figuring out how these animals are producing toxins in their skin.  Given how these newts and many other toxic animals in the sea are using bacteria to produce the toxins.  We generally assume that poison dart frogs are getting their toxins from the insects which are eating toxic fungus and plants.  Could there be more to the story?
