In the jungles of southern Venezuela is one of the largest frogs on the continent, with approx. 20cm the Gladiator Frog is a key member of this type of ecosystem, it feeds on Orthoptera (crickets, grasshoppers and locusts) and its name derives from a bulge on its thumb that it uses to fight with other males in the breeding season.

The populations of Venezuelan Guiana (deserve revision) are of nocturnal habits and prefer sinking into the rocks, erosion wells and drought river beds to lay thousands of eggs, it is like having a type of pool or nursery that they take care of energetically.

If you visit the Canaima National Park you will hear it every night, its singing is very peculiar, strong and dry; This type of vocalization allows them to call multiple females to copulate and ensure their species.

Is this poisonous? Because I've read somewhere that colorful frogs are mostly poisonous.
