Snake Steals Toxin from Poisonous Toads.

From the website:

It sounds like something straight out of a video game: A snake collects toxin by biting a poisonous toad and uses that venom as a defense against hawks and other predators. But that is exactly what researchers say the Asian snake Rhabdophis tigrinus does, based on studies of glandular fluid from hatchlings and adult snakes on two Japanese islands.

Poison frogs get their poison from insects. You can buy the frogs in the USA that are not poisonous. They are the same frogs but feed nonpoisonous bugs. The are beautiful if I might add. :)
