Video: The golden poison dart frog: ‘Like holding a loaded gun’

  • 53

Lucy Cooke, the ‘ avenger’, really loves frogs.

She travels to a remote region of Colombia’s wild west to look for one of the world’s most toxic animals: Phyllobates terribilis, the golden poison frog.

Protecting it from extinction isn’t an easy job – it lives among gold mines, drug runners, guerrillas and local people sceptical of protecting a frog that could kill them.

Can Lucy’s love for this rare orange frog convince them?
