Happy Save the Frogs Day!
Published April 27, 2014
Did you know? It’s National Frog Month AND today is Save the Frogs Day!
Frogs are fascinating animals with distinctive adaptations. With about 6,000 approximate species of frogs worldwide, they have a multitude of traits and tricks suited to their unique environments. At the Aquarium, we have frogs of every color of the rainbow, from the vivid indigo of the blue poison dart frog to the vibrant green skin of the giant leaf frog.
Check out some of the frogs that call the Aquarium home:

Varying in size between the the 18 mm Splash-back Poison Dart Frog and the 220 mm Giant Marine Toad frogs are some of the smallest animals at the Aquarium. Some species weigh only about 0.3 ounces.
In celebration of National Frog Month and Save the Frogs Day, we encourage you and your family to consider adopting one of our frogs through Aquadopt. Aquadopt programs help our frogs by allowing us to provide them with the best veterinary care and food.
Not only will you be supporting our frogs, with each adoption, you’ll receive a Fun Facts sheet to learn even more about frogs and their remarkable features, as well as an 8x10 photograph of your frog and a frog plush. Your gift promotes our mission to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures while taking care of those we have here at home!
