When I was in middle school our librarian brought in a terrarium from the science department and put it in the middle of the circulation desk. A few of us kids took notice and soon we were bringing in sticks and dirt, sand and other things to put inside it, although we had no idea why. A couple of weeks went by like this. Finally, one afternoon we came inside after lunch to find that there were 3 new additions to the terrarium! They were dart frogs! Blue, and yellow! Of course the first thing we asked was if we could touch and hold them, to which there was a resounding 'NO'. But we were allowed to stick around after lunch to peek on them, 'help' feed them when they needed to be fed, and watch as the science teacher would come around and take notes on them. I suppose looking back on it now, it was probably an experiment that the teacher was working on, but it was amazing to get to see these frogs in action! They are hard to spot, which makes them fun to look for, and they're so mesmerizing with their bright colors!
