Frogs: A Chorus of Colors
by AMNH on
Back by popular demand, Frogs: A Chorus of Colors, opens at the Museum on Saturday, May 28. Featuring more than 200 live frogs, from the tiny golden mantella frog to the enormous African bullfrog, this dynamic exhibition introduces visitors to these complex amphibians, their biology and evolution, their importance to ecosystems, and the threats they face in the wild.
In the video below, Associate Curator Christopher Raxworthy of the Museum’s Department of Herpetology discusses a few of the species featured in the exhibition and Hazel Davies, the Museum’s manager of Living Exhibits, shows the prep work and feeding that takes place every morning before visitors arrive.
