How Frogs See

Can a frog see something that isn't moving? Not so well!

When our explainers feed our frogs and toads, they wiggle the food in order for the animals to see it. This exhibit uses a special video processor to help visitors imagine what seeing their food might be like for frogs, who can see things that are moving but who have trouble seeing things that are still. Don't move too quickly, or the frog may try to catch you with its tongue!

This exhibit was designed by staff of the Montshire exhibits department.
