These tiny guys (19-24 mm) only live in Madagascar, and like seemingly every species in Madagascar, they are critically endangered. It’s active during the day, and its skin produces toxins. They lay eggs in leaf litter and depend on rain to wash them into bodies of water. Typically they live for around 8 years.

I just set up a Patreon for my daily animals. By becoming a patron, you’ll have my eternal gratitude and early access to every painting early at least three days before I post them here. More rewards for higher pledges. Check it out!
