Celebrate Leap Day" while learning about faboulous frogs
and awsome amphibians at the Tennessee Aquarium

During the Association of Zoos and Aquarium’s “Year of the Frog” we tip our hats to some of the most amazing and colorful animals – the world’s amphibians. Some are brightly colored like the various species of poison dart frogs and salamanders. Others like the mossy frog have cryptic color schemes that make them almost invisible in their natural surroundings.

The Tennessee Aquarium showcases nearly two dozen awe-inspiring amphibian species for guests to learn about. In addition, the Aquarium’s education department presents several other species to area classrooms and other students around the world live via HDTV distance learning programs.
