If you pick it up, you won't be putting it on any plant, anywhere, because you'll be DEAD. It's that poisonous. The toxic part of the slime will go right through your skin. If it didn't kill you within a minute or two, you'd still be in such bad shape you wouldn't care what happened to the frog.

So what, it just absolutely freezes and doesn't move AT ALL even if you pick it up and put it in the stem of a plant? Even if that's the case, I still think it is a plastic toy. I looked Borealis' other photos, and none of them look like plastic toys. It just doesn't look like it's moist. Plus there's the paint wearing off, etc. Anyway, I didn't know they actually exuded slime from their backs. I knew they were extremely poisonous, but didn't know about the slime part. Thanks!

Actually, the stiff pose is the defense reaction of the frog. It's so poisonous that the slightest touch on your skin will probably kill you, therefore, it doesn't need to run and hide, it just exudes slime from it's back. The natives who use the venom from the frog will very carefully tie all four legs and stretch the frog, applying heat and other irritants to get it to slime, and then carefully dip the points of their arrows into the goo. Then, even if an arrow just nicks it's target, it will kill the prey.

It may be based on a real frog, but that is a plastic frog. Just look at it! I dare you to even try to take a picture of a frog sitting on it's belly like that in some thin stem. Besides, you can see where the pain has worn off a little (snout, feet) and the eyes are clearly plastic too. The shiny wet appearance of real eyes is lacking, etc. If this isn't a fake frog, probably made out of plastic, I'll eat my hat.

The frog is real--It's a Strawberry Poison Arrow frog from South America. It's not an interesting shot, though.

I do, but I don't get why this one is voted so high. It's just a stupid plastic frog.
