This time on The Children’s Hour, we learn about frogs and toads, with Senior Zoologist of the ABQ Biopark Zoo’s Amphibians and Reptiles, Josh Butler.

Josh showed us the Colorado River Toad – the largest toad in the United States which lives in southwestern New Mexico and into Arizona.

Poison Dart Frog

We have a lot of questions about these ancient creatures. We also hear from the kids in the Extinction Diaries who have a warning about the shrinking populations of frogs.

We’ve got great music on this show. Learn with us!
