Another way we #ChangeClimateChange is by reducing waste and re-purposing our buildings! KidZooU: Hamilton Family Children's Zoo and Faris Family Education Center actually used to be our old pachyderm house! #EarthHour

One of the ways the Zoo strives to #ChangeClimateChange is by composting waste. In 2016 we composted 343 tons of waste - that's nearly 150 rhinos! #EarthHour

Glass frogs are among the coolest amphibians out there. These delicate tropical forest denizens have a transparent underside that helps camouflage better among the foliage. This is very helpful for males, since they sit and guard the eggs, which are laid above water on the underside of a leaf. A male with a green back and a transparent belly is almost impossible to detect.

Happy World Frog Day! Amazingly, female African bullfrogs can produce 3,000-4,000 eggs that develop into tadpoles in just two days!
