A single drop of the toxin coating the skin of a female golden dart frog can stop a human heart. But today, she's interested in a different kind of heart-stopping action - she's looking for a mate.
Follow the journey of Julieta, a female golden dart frog in search of her Romeo. She must dodge countless dangers and battle the harsh elements if she hopes to find a mate to fertilize her eggs. The jungle is full of peril, and Julieta is just two inches long and less than an ounce in weight, but don't underestimate her powers: a single drop of the toxin that coats her skin is enough to stop a human heart.
