Sponsor a Frog at The Manchester Museum
This Christmas The Manchester Museum is on hand to solve your Christmas gift dilemmas for the person in your life who thought they had everything.
Why waste money on ipads, Kindles or expensive scents when you can sponsor a rare frog with the Museum’s Sponsor a Frog package? Not only will you be giving a unique gift to the person in your life who has (nearly) everything, but you’ll also be helping to maintain some of the museum’s fantastic frog species. And who knows - you might even find your prince!
The species you can find at the Museum’s vivarium which are available for selection include:
- Splendid Leaf Frog (Cruziohyla calcarifer)
- Lemur Leaf Frog (Agalychnis lemur)
- Red-eyed Tree Frog (Agalychnis callidryas)
- Spurrell’s Leaf Frog, (Agalychnis spurrelli)
- Argentine Horned Frog (Ceratophrys ornata)
- Golden Poison-dart Frog (Phyllobates terribilis)
- Golden Mantella (Mantella aurantiaca)
Andrew Gray, Curator of Herpetology at The Manchester Museum, said “Our Sponsor a Frog scheme would make an ideal gift for anyone interested in frogs or natural history. As an extra bonus there’s a chance to visit the museum and have your photo taken with one of the world’s rarest frogs. The gift is also a great way of helping to support conservation and education and will be a huge help towards meeting the cost of the food and husbandry of your chosen frog species. After all, it’s not easy being green!”
