TOADALLY

San Antonio Zoo has a great amphibian exhibit called TOADALLY. It is very pertinent since Amphibians are a class of animals greatly in peril due to loss of habitat, disease, pollution , climate change and invasive species. It lists various important roles they play in pest control, food for some animals,and in research. The excellent signage lists 8 ways we can help amphibians such as learning more about them, enjoying nature, creating a frog friendly back yard, volunteer, save water, don’t pollute, use less energy, and adopt a frog or make a donation. Exhibited are frogs, toads, newts, salamanders, and caecilians. Scientists have found or have learned about drugs through studying amphibians. This includes drugs for pain, HIV, CANCER, diabetes, and infection. Examples of each type of amphibian are housed. Also a great feature on the golden frog of Panama is displayed telling us that the golden frog is the national animal of Panama like ours is the bald eagle. I highly recommend visiting the San Antonio zoo for many reasons besides the Amphibian exhibit.
