Lemur Frogs

Sixteen lemur tree frogs have recently metamorphosed (transitioned from tadpoles to froglet) at the Charles H. Hoessle Herpetarium! This species lays their eggs on plant leaves that overhang bodies of water. When they hatch, the tadpoles drop into the water below. The tadpoles then go through metamorphosis, where they grow legs and transition onto land. The lemur tree frogs at the Herpetarium live in a naturalistic habitat that provides the perfect environment, allowing for all three life stages (adults, tadpoles and froglets). Lemur tree frogs are critically endangered, with populations in Costa Rica, Panama, and a small part of Colombia. #BringTheStlZooToYou
