Essex County zoo celebrates Frog Month
The Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange is showing off its frog exhibit for National Frog Month.
Jeremy Goodman, director of the Turtle Back Zoo, says National Frog Month is a great time to talk about the importance of frogs.
Goodman says frogs are dying off at an alarming rate. "Between habitat loss and pollution in the environment there is a very deadly disease that's wiping out entire populations," says Goodman.
According to Goodman, 16 different types of frogs can be found in the Garden State.
