The Yellow-bellied poison frog (Andinobates fulguritus), also known as the yellow-bellied poison-arrow frog or yellowbelly poison frog, is a species of frog in the Dendrobatidae family. It is endemic to northwestern Colombia and east-central Panama. Its natural habitats are tropical moist lowland forests. It is a locally common, terrestrial frog. The eggs are deposited in leaf-litter; both parents carry the tadpoles to leaf axils, usually bromeliads, where they complete their development. It is threatened by habitat loss and pollution. This species seems not to be collected for pet trade.
