Opens Thursday, June 21
Featuring eye-popping colors, lusty songs, and long-legged leaps, Amazing Amphibians immerses visitors in the diverse and extraordinary world of amphibians testing their knowledge through interactive play. A colorful maze at the front of the exhibit greets families, inviting them to discover the lifecycles of these remarkable species through trivia and hands-on activities.
- Hop on the exhibit’s “Treetop Glider,” a 15-foot zipline where kids (and the young at heart) can glide from tree to tree like the black-webbed tree frog of Southeast Asia
- Test your leaping ability against Chicago’s local frogs
- Test your knowledge with fun trivia about amphibians
The exhibit also features live frogs and other amphibians, including tiger salamanders, American toads, green tree frogs, and more! Visitors can also learn how they can help protect amphibian populations locally.
