Epipedobates Tricolor

Transcript: The Poison Size: 2-3 cm Diet - small arthropods, including insects like fruit flies and ants. A high majority is of Pumiliotoxin-containing ants (1). Location - Forests of southwestern Ecuador and northwestern Peru (2). Life Cycle - Eggs hatch and the male frog brings the tadpoles to the water where they grow into adult frogs. Family Tree - Animalia Chordata Amphibians Anura (Frogs) Dendrobatidae (Poisonous Frogs) Epipedobates Tricolor Defensive Weapon - The phantasmal poison frog secretes an alkaloid from its skin. The frog accumulates the alkaloids from the many ants that it eats. It will only produce its poison if fed the right ants in captivity. Frogs that are captured maintain poison levels for years (1). The poison is called epibatidine, named in honor of the frog. If an organism brushes the frog, the poison will be absorbed in through the skin. The LD50 of epibatidine is .4 µg, which is 200x more potent than morphine 1. Saporito, R., Garraffo, H. M., Donnelly, M., Edwards, A., Longino, J., & Daly, J. (2004, May 5).

This desensitizes the receptor from receiving any of the natural ligand, acetyl choline (1). This effectively shuts down the muscle control system and paralyzes the victim, leading to die of asphyxiation. Accidental poisonings of humans are treatable by putting them on a ventilator until the effects of the poison wear off. There is no medical uses of epibatidine, but a compound that was synthesized from it called ABT - 594 is being tested for a pain relieving medicine (1). Epipedobates Tricolor

Transcript: START! A DJ or "Disc Jockey" is aperson who plays recorded music and mixes two or more tracks or records. In 1857, a Frenchman, Leon Scott Invented the first phonoautograph. This device was used to record sound but with no way to playback. It was made of a wax cylinder with grooves on the outside. Soon Emile Berliner's Gramophone would replace it in 1887. The Gramophone also has grooves on it for recording only it's a plastic disc making it re-usable. Some time in Jamaica during the 50's some premotors who called themselves "Djs" would play two different songs on seperate Gramophones with a mix-board in the middle(third pic below). DJs and songs!
