aka Phyllomedusa bicolor
this Amazonian rainforest tree frog is prized by natives for its skin secretions which contain psychoactive peptides that modulate mu opiod receptors and have other actions under considerable scientific study
being peptides, these toxins must be absorbed through excoriated skin
