New paludarium for Durant Nature Center

My big vivarium at home:

This is my paludarium. It is very comforting to observe and interact with this miniature Eden, and I’m very pleased with the water feature. Sometimes Evan will hang out below the edge, lurking for bugs. Water is important for frogs. They need constant access to a small pool of dechlorinated water, since they absorb water through their skin. They start their lives as fish, after all, and they are very watery creatures. You don’t need a fancy water feature like this, though. A small dish will be fine, as long as the water is changed frequently.

They change color, sometimes dramatically.

Here is a video of my largest vivarium. Nobody has to make a water feature if you don’t want to! I had fun making it:
