Nature on Display
The Frogs: A chorus of colors exhibit truly caught my eye. This was a temporary exhibit only on display for a week. The room was filled with terrariums each one with a different species of frogs. As I went from terrarium to terrarium I would try to find the usually well camouflaged frog or toad. This continued until I came upon the poison dart frogs, a very brightly colored and dangerous species. I never thought I would see these in person due to their extreme toxicity. This species is rubbed onto tips of spears by tribes allowing them to quickly bring down game. Being able to see these creatures in person and so close gave me a greater appreciation for the diversity of the frogs on earth. This exhibit was just a small sample and yet all these species were specialized and unique.
