Ancient visitors are coming to Rolling Hills Zoo in April.
“Frogs have been around since the dinosaurs roamed the earth,” said Linda Henderson, Development and Marketing Director at Rolling Hills Zoo.
Henderson joined in on the KSAL Morning News Friday with a look at the exhibit set to open on April 23rd in the Earl Bane Gallery that will boast 23 live frog species from around the world including eight from Kansas.
Henderson told listeners that although there are over 4,700 species that have been identified – many have been lost or are threatened by loss of habitat.
“What we are starting to see from an environmental standpoint is that there course is starting to fade. Since 1980 we have lost 120 species of frogs,” she said.
Those wishing to get a close-up look at these colorful amphibians can catch the exhibit “Frogs: A Chorus of Colors” from April 23, through September 11, 2016.
Visitors will have a chance to find hidden frogs, activate frog calls and watch a daily frog feeding.
