Frogs are found all over the world from the rainforest to the tundra to the desert. This site highlights the work that the American Museum of Natural History has done with these creatures both in the field and in the museum. Visitors will want to begin with the introduction that offers a brief essay about the frogs’ adaptability and a definition of the amphibian. The featured frog species and the Dart poison frogs sections offer visitors information, high quality photos and sounds of more than a dozen species each. Additionally, visitors can explore the reproductive cycle of frogs, the frog’s evolution over time, frogs and the ecosystem and how the frog population is declining. Students will enjoy the frog sounds from the island of Madagascar and the fun frog facts but unfortunately the Frog Cam is no longer live. Included is an interesting piece on the frog research at the museum: Discovering Frog Diversity around the World with AMNH.
