This is a podcast by and for kids giving you the coolest facts about the coolest animals. We research our episodes carefully, distilling the information into manageable segments, focusing on the things that really make these animals unusual. Thanks for listening!


Golden Poison Dart Frog

Happy Summer! On this episode, we are talking about a sunny-colored frog, which happens to be one of the most toxic animals in the world – the golden poison dart frog.  We discuss the difference between venomous and toxic, how many humans one of these tiny frogs can kill with one touch, and their surprisingly social nature.  Plus: can you guess which sound comes from a poison dart frog? (Jaguar does a pretty good imitation!)

Also please consider supporting us on our Patreon page! Any money received will go toward funding a trip to Eastern or Southern Oregon to meet in person with a scientist and learn more about a different animal habitat.

If you think you know the answer to our creature quiz or riddle, or want to tell us about your Kid Power success, send us an email at, or tweet us at @coolanimalspod 

We are on summer vacation, and so likely won’t be publishing on our usual schedule.  But we will be back soon with our next episode!

Thanks as always to Andrew of the awesome podcast Ear Snacks for our theme music!
