Welcome, Red Eye Tree Frogs!

Smithsonian National Zoo has new amphibians

If traveling to the Smithsonian National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute is on your to-do list, you're in for a treat: the zoo recently aquired new red eye tree frogs! They are located in the zoo's Reptile Discovery Center and they may be breeding the frogs in the future once they reach maturity.

Red eye tree frogs are so cool, not only because their eyes are red and vibrant when they're awake but also because you can still see the red peek through the membrane while the frogs are asleep! The zoo hopes that the frogs will not only bring in visitors who want to see the frogs but also help educate about the dangers of taking the frogs from the wild as pets, as many people do. The best time to come see the frogs is in late morning or afternoon when they will be most active.

Has your local zoo acquired any great frogs lately? Share the news in the chat!
