Will you be needing any special assistance as you move throughout the museum floor. Oh well I think you must be mistaken. I am not an all Croak. I'm practically practically a polygraph. I'm sorry my bad I guess it's just the student that elbow patches just kind of threw me off. My granddad wears the same out that the juniors department and look. This tie is a clip on. Don't tell anyone world this in a senior citizen and we have another one as well. He's right in the. Where's Thomas fingerling? Elaine look over there does not fingerling road run to old growth into poly walk and a pigeon He doesn't like to talk about his age weightman. The I just remembered Reggie's families one of the museums. Major donors an entire wing named after why there was a wing sticking out of the side of the building like that on our way. Oh cool. Major donors major donors get in free and so do all the fun you guys okay. So where should we start. I well looking at the map here. I think we should make our first stop at the hall. Call of mini frogs. Midi frogs. Manu of Basie was born. Never the way we would allow back leg. Yeah I was just reading about these mindy frogs. I mean many frogs. In fact three new species were just discovered on the island of Madagascar. A team of evolutionary biologists were the ones to find them an evolutionary evolutionary biologists scientists who studies how all different types of life on earth evolved from one common ancestor. Exactly right and isn't a species. Basically just a group of living things that have so much in common they can get together and reproduce or make more of themselves for example we humans belong to the Homo sapiens species right and so who were these evolutionary biologists who found these new frog species. Well there there was a whole team of them led by a scientist named Mark Shirts. And he's from Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich Germany. So what market sure is in his team of biologists. What with finding a bunch of many frogs? I mean sounds like it would be a lot easier to find. Big Frogs toads even well. How how many are we talking here? Because I haven't even seen them yet in already. I can feel my cute gration kicking. It looks like we're at the hall of mini frogs. Now let's see ourselves book. Thank you very much. I took I think we've been duped what there's a big old query him with some plans inside inside but not seeing any frogs froggy brought froggy usually works mindy. If we can't find these mini frogs the museum of just imagine how difficult it must've been for this team of biologists to find them in the wild forests of Madagascar car. Well if they were tiny defined easily than how did these scientists even know that they were there. Well that's a good question you see. The scientists could appear different. Sounds of the mini frog. So they would try to follow in the direction of their calls. But I bet as soon as the frog detected the scientists coming up bon them. They leap up in hop away. Well it was like an interspecies game of Marco Polo and that was just the first obstacle. You see once. They were finally able to capture some of these frogs the biologists found that they were too tiny to even tell apart. Yeah ask so exactly. How tiny are we talking here? You Might WanNa take out your magnifying goggles. This one because the biggest one of the species. ABC's who the scientist named many actor small enough to fit on a human thumbnail largest mini frog concerned. Dollar heroin thumbnail. No I wish I still had human thumbnails. And if you think that's small you need to meet miniscule and mini mini. Mum Home Phone guys. Are you telling me that. These scientists name these new species mini adventure. Miniscule Excu all and many mum well you know. Scientists are known for being kind of funny so if many assure is small enough to fit on a thumbnail then how small are many. You'll in many many SC. You'll is actually a little smaller smaller than many actor so smaller than a thumbnail. Yup and many mom. The smallest of the new species is as small all is a staple or a grain of rice rice mini patties magnifying goggles. These tiny for myself who needed a little burst through this wall froggy in she fraud taking. We're now what is he doing. Only only what's in John Paul. How tiny little phrases you can quit on top of it and what are you doing black sleep in get in there? This is a disaster. Yeah sorry go candidate off to career in the Bronx. You're coming with us. Well now we need to squeegee the frog water off at the security early office. She'll be staying there so she can't damage anymore exhibits you can pick her up on your way out and stop singing. I think that's Excuse me everyone on. We're going to need you to move onto the next exhibit. This one is closed. So where do we go next. Mindy take the map a map. How many paces to the buried treasure Sherrit me? Timbers I'll be captain Captain Jack Russell terrier and Mindy can be Orlando Bloom. Where exactly do you think we are right now? Just next EXOO ribbit is going to be. So wow the whole thing takes place. In the pitch-black Darkness for added effect work garnered affect a Napping Ping. Did Not come here to NAP. The reason it takes place in the pitch-black darkness is because it's supposed to help us to see some unusual double feature of the frogs featured in it. Okay I'm intrigued. Let's go check it out. Mindy flashlight in your adventure. Toolkit by any chance. Oh No oh guy rose a flashlight would ruin the whole experience. What we'll need is my ultraviolet? You realize check this baby out. It's like a black light that makes things glow they're white or fluorescent. Follow me everyone to the Atlantic forest of eastern them long eastern Brazil. We just got to the museum and we promise Your Grandma G. Force that we'd be back to get rid of security soon. Be Fine G.. Three fourths went to Brazil last week. No no you guys. Were not leaving the museum. We're just going to the next ribbit it's modeled after the Atlantic forest dip eastern Brazil Brazil. My favorite time of year and how that my eyes are just into the dark like kind of amphibian are we actually looking for fell all. Describe it for you. It Kamala nickel bright orange like Pumpkin and look like a rock because it's brock. Oh Oh any of that. You need to work on your instructional clarity Mr Okay. I'm looking baller than a nickel bright orange Pumpkin and looks like a frog right. And according to the map he can be found hiding anywhere in this X.. Ribbons and the a strange feeling. We're not in the museum anymore. This is looking and feeling pretty lifelike. That's all part of the experience Skyros. Now let's lock arms wander through in search of this Bra. d'armes what are we playing Red Rover. Oh Ooh let me put on my Red Rover and Jews those away all right. Give me your here. We go inclusion include Nichols frogs. Hello there it from welcome to senior day at the Museum of. Wow how many groups do we have here today. Well highly. Hi polly walk. We're trying to find the nickel-sized pumpkin frogs. Yes you're looking for the PUMPKIN toilet. Well L. Look no further. I happen to have one right here. Eighteen no grants but I can tell you all about it. We're all ears. Well the Pumpkin told his not all ears in fact because of its underdeveloped ears it is completely deaf which means it can't even hear the mating calls of its own species. Well if it can't hear the mating calls of its own species than how is the Pumpkin toilet. Suppose to find a mate and reproduce to make more pumpkin toilets. Yeah or the mail told the Post to show off for the ladies like other frogs do if the ladies can't even hear their sweet cokes. Yeah explain that one smarty smarty pants well according to a recent study led by scientists Sandra goot from NYU Abu Dhabi. The answer to that question chicken is just under the frog's skin under the skin. What do you mean well? Can I borrow that ultraviolet flashlight you got their what. Oh yeah sure thank you okay. Now Watch what happens when I shine this. Ultraviolet light on the PUMPKIN toilets skin skin glowing they seem to be glowing glowing or bright blue color. Those bones are progressing through with bright orange. Skin shame that you'd be laid on me on a C. N. I can get my bones to glow. Yeah yeah it almost looks like a blue light is coming from the tiny bony plate in its head and the bones in the back of its. It's lags it's like a fluorescent skeleton. If the pumpkin totaling can't hear a don't call much less the calls a mother pumpkin toilets. Then scientists think that maybe it uses its glowing bones to find mates instead you know like as a way of keeping of light on well. That's one theory as to why these frogs might have glowing bones but we still don't know for sure if the Pumpkin toilets can see the glow. Well then what's the point of having glowing glowing bones if you can't even show them up to your froggy friends good airbase. I'm sorry Sir Sir Sir do you have a frog. Believe you're supposed to taste like what are you doing. I mean I know that some burns at the ability to leap lessons with their own eyes and definitely don't have you realize the frogs are not for eating to try everything once I always say and I also know that birds are natural predators two frogs so may be eighty eight the pumpkin total in his mouth. I I can see a glowing GCA. were very long while Sir. According to a study published in the journal scientific reports one of the reasons the pumpkin total it might glow is to signal to would be predators that they are in fact. Talk Sick Ling that Pumpkin is. This is a disaster spin out Out Spit it out. Trying to sell me. Poison buys hot dogs online. The money back. You know what we were actually just getting ready to head out before we go. Just WanNa make sure I I got this straight okay. So the pumpkin toilet is a tiny toxic frog that can not here has newly discovered glowing allowing bones and scientists have a few theories. There's still on a quest figure out. Why Yeah Great? Well thank you very much for your tour to this amazing eggs. Yeah we're really sorry. Our friend who tried to eat it blew learn. Now do you think you could point us to the security slammer. I need to pick up my grandma G. force. She's in for setting all the many dogs free. was you people. I should call security. Oh Boy Boston out your way security. They're here in the PUMPKIN bumpkins spite. I mean the Pumpkin toilet exhibit. Hold on a second Yes how can I help you there Mr Pigeon. Oh you're the chaperone known for these people. Well I'm afraid I'm going to have to your Reginald your family's these contributions to the museum have single handedly funded this new amphibian exhibit. You know what.
