Data for Poison Frogs in U.S. Collections

  • Devin Edmonds (Creator)



The dataset shows all poison frogs (superfamily Dendrobatoidea) in private U.S. collections during 1990–2020. For each species and color morph, there is a date of arrival, the way it arrived in U.S. collections, and detailed notes related to its presence in the pet trade. A second sheet details 10 wildlife trade pathways identified for poison frogs. The data can be used to examine the amphibian pet trade.
