Summary

Description
English: Anomaloglossus kaiei, a new species in the poison dart frog family discovered in 2004 at Kaieteur National Park, Guyana, South America. Males can be as large as 18.9 millimeters, females up to 19.8 millimeters. This was only the second species of Colostethus known to provide maternal care for tadpoles. The new species is named in honor of Kaie, a great Chieftain of the Patamona tribe, from whom Kaieteur Falls was named. According to the legend, Kaie, in order to save his people from being destroyed by a warrior tribe, the Caribs, sacrificed himself to the Great Spirit Makonaima by canoeing over the falls.
