Day 277: Poison Dart Frog

image

We found a big show off in the frog room. This poison dart frog was exhibiting his colorful belly to the world. Within a few minutes he did a slow slide down the glass.

Most of the frog tanks were a game of I Spy. There were several exhibits with frog calls and speakers. The only disappointing part of this was the frog themed jungle gym in the same room. It was so loud that we only glanced at most tanks before skittering out of the room.

This seems like a weird fun fact. Does anyone know more about this process? I understand dyeing but how for you change the genetics with topical treatment? Very cool.
