WOW! Science Camp



Red-eyed Tree Frog


Doesn't this little tree frog look sleepy and a bit boring? Just call her name: "Cha Cha, Wake Up!" WOW! Look at her now! Those big red eyes and feet are enough to scare any predator away!

My name is Cha Cha and I live in the rain forest. Some birds might even think that I am a Poison Dart Frog. No smart bird eats one of those because they taste so bitter.

I like to eat crickets. My beautiful colors make me one of the prettiest frogs in the rain forest! Thank-you God for making me so pretty! Do you see my blue legs?




My name is SKIPPY! I love to eat fruit mix 2-3 times per week. Feeding off insects like crickets or small roaches and meal worms are my favorite. Blue and red are 2 colors I can't see. Being nocturnal, I have highly snesitive rod cells, which are cells of the eyete tha specialize in discerning shaedes of gray. I don't have eyelids so I use my long tongue to moisten my eyes and remove debris.

I can't close my eyes. Unlike some other geckos, once I lose my tail it will not grow back. It isn't a good idea to hosue two male crested Geckos together, as they are likely to fight. I don't need many friends and can live a solitary life in a cage with no detriment whatsoever. When I shed I become less sticky and I shed all at once. I can't climb walls very well.


Corn Snake


I am REESE the Kenya Sand Boa pet snake. We are the smallest pet snakes available on the pettrade. We are placid laid back snakes that are excellent for novice snake owners. I have a strong appetite for mice.

I am not a strong climber and prefer to stay low to the ground. I can live possibly up to 30 years but average 20 years. I prefer to feed at night being nocturnal. I'm male and smaller than females of my kind. I will mature at 2 feet long where females of my type can mature at 3 feet long.





Croak! My name is Sammy Croaker! I'm a White's tree frog, or dumby tree frog (Litoria caerulea) and I'm originally native to Australia and New Guinea and later moved to the United States. It is important that I be around water and mist daily. I eat crickets and other very small insects. I like a wide variety of prey foods. I need vitamins and minerals and must live in a very clean place. I like to eat 3 times a week.

I'm smaller than female White's tree frogs. Keep me away from birds, fish and turtles!






I am an animal known as an invertebrate. That means I have no bones. For protection, I have a hard outer shell called an exoskeleton. My name is "Milly", and I am from the rain forest. I love to eat lettuce.

I have tiny mites that live on my body. They are bugs that are smaller than the tip of a pin! I would die without the mites and the mites would die without me. They help to keep me clean by eating bacteria and other small things. I keep the mites alive by allowing them to live on me. This type of relationship is called symbiosis. That means that two animals need each other to survive. Awesome!






I am from Africa and I like to eat crickets. I have a big stinger on my tail. OUCH!! It would not kill a person, but it sure would hurt. Under a black light, I look green. Can you see the greenish pigment in my exoskeleton? I use my pinchers to catch crickets. Then, my mouth eats the cricket. YUM!

Last summer, I had 6 white babies that lived on my back. I ate several of them and got in a lot of trouble with Ms. Barbara! I thought they were a threat to me and might try to eat MY crickets! And, I don't like to share!




We are from an island off the coast of Africa called Madagascar. To protect ourselves, we hiss by releasing air from our body. We may look scary, but if you look at our little bitty heads, we are kinda cute! We walk with our head tucked under our body because we want to protect it. And, that makes us look scarier! We love to eat rotten fruit like bananas and we also enjoy dog food. Woof!
