This brightly colored frog is native to Central America and northwestern parts of South America.  This species was introduced into Hawaii in 1932 to help control the non-native insect populations, mainly mosquitos.    They obtain their poison from their natural habitats so they should not be poisonous in Hawaii.   They are mostly found in Manoa valley on Oahu.
