Animal Behavior

Besides using the Marine Tank to study animal behavior, another interesting study would be with poison dart frogs. Poison dart frogs lose the venom/toxin when removed from their natural habitat. They get their venom from eating a certain ant and then secrete the venom from their skin.

Poison dart frogs also have coloration, natural selection, defense mechanisms, etc.

Here is a web link on the frogs
