Listen, frogs usually creep us out too—they're like half snake and half mouse—but whenever the American Museum of Natural History brings their frog exhibit back we sort of can't stop marveling at the weird little creatures.
Over the weekend the museum opened this year's Frogs: A Chorus of Colors exhibit (running through January 2014), which features 200 colorful and crazy-looking frogs from all over the world. What are all of these exotic little guys doing in the big city?
"A pioneer in modern frog research, the American Museum of Natural History has one of the largest frog collections in the world. Museum expeditions to remote mountaintops, as well as surveys of local wetlands, continue to uncover new populations and species—but also reveal environmental changes that threaten frogs' existence. Many efforts are underway to reverse this downward trend globally and in our own backyards."
This year they've got 20 species from all over the globe, including those dart-poison frogs, fire-bellied toads, and toothless predators! Conquer your ranidaphobia and check them all out.
