Great Lakes Science Center's newest exhibit dissects the importance of frogs.

Though frogs are such small creatures, they have a huge effect on our ecosystem. "Frogs are an indicator species," says Dante Centuori, director of creative productions at the Great Lakes Science Center. "Their skin is permeable, so it absorbs things more easily, letting us know when changes in the environment occur." Starting May 26, Frogs! A Chorus of Colors will give visitors an opportunity to come face-to-face with 90 live frogs from around the world. "Not only will you learn frogs' importance to the ecosystem, but you'll also see the great variety that frogs possess, from color to sound and more," says Centuori.
