Back by popular demand, this delightful exhibition introduces visitors to the colorful and richly diverse world of frogs. More than 150 live frogs, from the tiny phantasmal dart-poison frog (which is less than an inch long) to the enormous African bullfrog (which can be as big as 8 inches in diameter), are shown in re-created habitats, complete with rock ledges, live plants, and waterfalls. Featuring approximately 25 species from such countries as Argentina, Bolivia, Borneo, Brazil, China, Indonesia, Madagascar, Malaysia, Paraguay, Russia, Sumatra, the United States, and Uruguay, the exhibition explores the evolution and biology of these amphibians, their importance to ecosystems, and the threats they face in the world's changing environments. Interactive stations throughout the exhibition invite visitors to activate recorded frog calls, view videos of frogs in action, and test their knowledge about these fascinating amphibians.
