A drop. A ripple. A wave. Each possess energy singularly and together to affect change. Water Logged chronicles an open conversation between the community (you) and the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher-from conservation to inspiration. So let it flow.
Give a warm welcome to the newest additions to the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher’s dart frog exhibit, three Phrynohyas resinifictrix. These exotic amphibians are commonly known as Amazon milk frogs. The Amazon milk frog is a large species of arboreal frog that was originally discovered in Brazil, and is mainly found in South America. Their habitats are located in humid rainforest regions. They especially love slow moving water. They are rather large in size, and are generally a light grey color with black or brown banding in adolescents. Here are a few interesting facts about the new arrivals.
· As the frogs mature their colors transform, and their skin becomes bumpy
· They breed only in holes in large trees
· They are called milk frogs due to the poisonous, white, milky secretion that they may emit when threatened
Next time you are walking around the aquarium, be sure to stop by the dart frog exhibit and see the fresh faces of the Amazon milk frogs.
