Jungles & Coral Reefs


Ecosystems in tropical regions are at particular risk due to global climate change and human developments. These displays focus on diverse tropical life, in both the jungles of the land and the coral reefs of the sea.

Red Piranha

Carnivorous fish that live in South America - watch out for their incredibly sharp teeth!
On the other hand, they might look fierce, but they're actually quite easy to scare.

Yellow-Headed Poison Frog

These frogs live in the tropical rainforests of South America, and eat small bugs.
Their skin is covered in a highly toxic poison, and their spectacular yellow and black stripes and spots serve as a warning to the predators.

Panther Chameleon

Panther chameleons live in the treetops of northern Madagascar, and they use their long, sticky tongues to catch bugs and other small prey. The males' colors vary widely by region: their bodies can be blue, red, green, or other colors.

Coral Reef Area

Spotted Garden Eel

Native to the sandy sea beds near coral reefs exposed to currents in the Indian Ocean and the western Pacific Ocean.
They are easily frightened - if the predators come near them, they immediately disappear into their holes to hide.

False Clown Anemonefish

These fish live in the southern Pacific Ocean, and are famous for their symbiotic relation-ships with sea anemones.
Anemonefish actually change from male to female after they are grown.

Coral Reef

Coral reefs are made up of various colors of hard corals, which is native to warm oceans. Though they may look like plants, especially because they get energy through photosynthesis, corals are actually animals that even fight and lay eggs.
