Plant Fact - At Home in the Gardens

Many creatures make the Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden their home, most commonly squirrels, birds, and a variety of insects. However, if you look closely along the horsetail reeds of the Pure Energy pond, you will spot the green tree frog clinging to the tall grass. You may need to look really hard because their bright green color (sometimes brown) helps them blend in to their surroundings and makes them harder to see. This adaptation is called camouflage.
