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.
