I'm ignoring you, Dex. It's always a good day for doing that. Today we're celebrating frogs and remembering that many live in places that are under threat, like rainforests, where trees are being cut down. Check this out: PBS has a whole site about the Amazon that includes an explorer game.

Poison-Arrow Frogs live in rainforests in South America. They're pretty cool. They're tiny, but their skin is so poisonous that you can use it to put on arrowheads to hunt birds. Sweet!

Charming. The Rainforest Alliance has some great frog info and the Exploratorium even has frog sounds to listen to.
