Think watching The Muppets has taught you everything there is to know about frogs? Think again.
Adventure Aquarium, the world-class attraction on the Camden Waterfront, recently debuted its newest exhibit, Frogs: Nature’s Messenger.
This informative and interactive exhibition highlights the vital roles that these amphibious creatures play in the earth’s biosphere.
As visitors come face to face with frogs of all types, colors and sizes, they will learn about the evolution, biology, natural habitat and unique characteristics of their favorite amphibian friends. From the tiny but memorable Golden Poison Dart frog, to the massive African bullfrog, every creature has its own place and job to do.
Thanks to a partnership with the Camden City School District, this exhibit also includes a community-inspired element. Students from one classroom at each of the elementary Camden Schools were challenged to paint a larger-than-life ceramic frog. Guests can vote for their favorite painted frog, and the classroom with the most votes at the end of the contest will celebrate with a pizza party.
Tickets are available online and run $24.95 for visitors age 13 and up, $18.95 for visitors ages 2-12. Children under two years old get in free with a paying adult.
Hop on over the Delaware River to check out the visiting amphibians.
