Frogs: Nature's Messenger

Adventure Aquarium gets hopping this winter with an exciting new exhibit on this popular type of amphibian. Visitors can view over 20 exotic frog species from around the world, from the beautiful Red-Eyed Tree Frog and small-but-deadly Golden Poison Dart frog to the mammoth African bullfrog, capable of eating a mouse whole. The exhibit also includes a variety of interactive activities designed to teach visitors about amphibian habitats, characteristics, biology and related topics. Before leaving, visitors should be sure to check out the Tadpole Gallery, which will feature hand-painted frogs made by students from various Camden City School District elementary schools.
