Endangered golden mantella frogs go out on display

Our beautiful golden mantella frogs, who recently arrived from Bristol Zoo, are now out on display.

The golden mantella is a tiny frog native to Madagascar - even as adults they are genreally less than an inch long. They are beautiful yellow-orange frogs, with bright colours to warn predators not to eat them!

In the wild golden mantella are critically endangered (IUCN 3.1), meaning that they might soon go extinct.

Our froglets were bred at Bristol Zoo and joined us in October 2016. They have been off show since then, going out into their new display exhibit in early December, once they were big enough.
