Frogs hop into Milwaukee Public Museum next fall

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- More than 150 frogs from around the world will be at the Milwaukee Public Museum starting this fall.

There will be tree frogs, bullfrogs, horned frogs, giant toads and dart poison frogs, among others.

Their habitats will be recreated through state-of-the-art controls that provide lighting, humidity, temperature and water quality for the delicate creatures.

The exhibit will explore frogs' biology, natural history, their role in human cultures, their importance to ecosystems, and the peril they face in a changing environments.

Clyde Peeling's Reptiland in Allenwood, Penn. created the exhibition. Its design and construction took more than two years.

"Frogs: A Chorus of Colors" starts Oct. 1 and runs through Jan. 2.
