Wednesday Video Spotlight: Oklahoma City Zoo opens new frog exhibit on Leap Day
The Oklahoma City Zoo marked Leap Day today by opening a new frog exhibit.
The exhibit at Island Treasures in Island Life will feature seven new frogs not previously exhibited at the zoo, including the strawberry dart frog, Asian climbing toads and the cinnamon tree frog, reports my fine colleague Matt Patterson.
Several of the frogs on display are endangered. The brown mantella is native to Madagascar. The Puerto Rican crescent toad also is endangered. One reason is habitat loss: Frog reproduction is often more complicated than with other animals.
