    It appears that the frogs accumulate alkaloids from a variety of insects ranging from mites to centipedes. “Evolution of Dietary Specialization and Chemical Defense in Poison Frogs (Dendrobatidate): A Comparative Analysis”. The American Natural 165: 56-69.

    I would be interested in knowing what in kind of building those books were kept. The Library of Congress has millions of books and it remains undamaged.

    Apropos the Human Taxidermy: seems like this guy wasn’t satsfied with blow-up dolls, tho he really stuffed up gettin’ caught like that — he’s not so much ‘bats in the attic’ as he is ‘corpses in the cellar’!


    Apropos the books: that’s what you call heavy reading!


    Apropos the poison dart frog: so does it shoot non-poisonous darts if it doesn’t eat these specific insects then? Wouldn’t describe it as “entirely harmless” if so!



    Check out this link for some hilarious comments when a Ripley’s researcher asked for info on Human Taxidermy:

    I thought my book collection was bad.

    Steven King should hear about those corpse dolls. They’d inspire him to write a new novel.

    What kind of cheap material was that building made from that those books damaged it? I know it was 30 tons but wow! those were probably some great books.

    gmartin997,
    It’s too bad we can’t say the same for the Congress itself! :o(

    Even my backpack can’t stand the strain!

    The weight of those books is enough to make even a Poison Dart Frog croak!

    How do you know if the frog ate those bugs or not?
    Simple. Pick him up, if you live, you know he didn’t eat those bugs.

    They live in the Amazon. If you want them poisonous you need the insects it eats too.


    Wow, I love to read but that is just too many books for the space. Crunch when physics an gravity catch up.


    How wonderfully fascinating an ghoulish! 29 life sized dolls patched together from different corpses. I’d like to read the story, with color photos about this hobby. I see “based on” material for a dozen movies.
