Visit the Detroit Zoo's official Amphibiville home page here. When I visited, this section of the zoo was still under construction and not all of the exhibits described on the web page were open yet.
More photos from my visit to the Detroit Zoo are here. I also have a few more frog photos on my Cheyenne Mountain Zoo photo page. For more frog stuff, visit The Froggy Page.

|I'm surprised they didn't have "frog crossing" signs up, too.|
|A bullfrog tadpole.|
|An adult bullfrog.|
|Close-up of another adult bullfrog.|
|Same bullfrog as in the previous photo.|
|This frog didn't have a label on its display, and I'm not sure what species it is. It's a fat, medium-sized frog without dorsolateral ridges.|
|A green poison-arrow frog, clinging to the glass of its display.|
|Another green poison-arrow frog.|
|A rococco toad. These are big toads, similar to the giant toad or marine toad.|
|Another rococco toad.|
|A mountain chicken. Yes, that's really what they're called. I suppose they must taste like chicken.... (sob!)|
|Another view of the mountain chicken. This is a pretty big frog, about the same size as the bullfrogs.|
|A Wyoming toad.|
|Another Wyoming toad.|
|Lilypads in the pond outside the frog house. I assume they are going to put some native frog species in this pond, but none were in evidence when I visited just a month or so after Amphibiville opened.|
