|The "Amazonia" building had all of these tanks of poison-arrow frogs in a lab area, visible from the public area but off-limits to visitors. There weren't any staff people around at the time I visited, or I would have asked if I could get a closer look. It does appear that their breeding program has been pretty successful!|
|Nice froggy poster. You can read more about International Amphibian Days at the official web site for the event.|
|The frog tanks that were on public display in the "Amazonia" building had so much condensation on the glass that it was difficult to take photos of the frogs inside.|
|Here's looking at you, kid.|
|They had several species of frogs mixed up in the same big tank.|
|This black and yellow frog was the smallest frog in the big tank.|
|Another shot of the small yellow frog.|
|I think this is a smooth-sided toad. Their tank was located in a public lab area in the "Amazonia" building.|
|There were more poison-arrow frogs in the reptile house.|
