|A green poison arrow frog.|
I think this is a different frog than the one in the previous photo. There
were several of them in the display.|
|This is the same frog as in the last photo.|
|A fire-bellied toad, Bombina orientalis. These are unusually aquatic toads who like to spend their time floating around in the water.|
|More toads. There were several of them in the tank at the zoo.|
|I think this toad was trying to intimidate me by showing me his orange belly. Like many brightly-colored frogs and toads, these toads excrete a poison from their skin.|
|This toad was labelled as a "Sonoran Toad", but my amphibian field guide calls this a "Colorado River Toad" instead. Whatever. It's a large toad that is native to desert areas in Arizona.|
