FROGS: Dazzling and Disappearing
Discover the dazzling diversity of frogs and their amphibian relatives at the Aquarium of the Pacific.
Close to two dozen species in thematic displays, educational graphics, and interactive exhibits highlight the beauty of and threats to these remarkable animals. The exhibit traces the history of amphibians, their life cycles, the different environments they live in from deserts to rainforests, the diversity of species, and their surprisingly uncertain future.
Frogs and other amphibians have adapted over millions of years to survive and thrive in their ecosystems.
Amphibians reproduce in many different ways, but in general they lay eggs. After the larvae hatch they develop into tadpoles.
Amphibians today are emblematic of how an entire group of animals can be overwhelmed by threats to its survival.
Frogs make their vocalizations by forcing air from their lungs through vocal cords. Some frogs have inflatable vocal sacs that radiate the sound.
About two dozen species of frogs and other amphibians are on display at the Aquarium.
