Henry Vilas Zoo - Public Amphibian Exhibits

In May of 2005 new amphibian exhibits were setup at the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, Wisconsin. Originally created to highlight the amphibians of Central and South America, the focus is now on Costa Rican amphibians. An emphasis is put on bringing attention to Brian Kubicki's work at the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Center. Contact me at devin@amphibiancare.com before using any of these photographs.
