A new showcase in the Amphibians and Reptiles Hall at the National Museum of Natural History, Sofia presents the most interesting poisonous snakes, as well as the most toxic frogs in the world. The visitors will receive contemporary, useful and interesting information about all the poisonous species of amphibians and reptiles inhabiting Bulgaria. They can learn facts about the amount of poison secreted from the most dangerous species, and data concerning the lethal dose for humans.

A separate panel shows information about the extremely interesting group of sea snakes. Another panel provides information about the most famous group of the poisonous frogs — that of family Dendrobatidae which are native to Central and South America.

The panels are illustrated with many colour photographs.
