Life on the Wild Side

A week hardly goes by without a fascinating animal, bird, or bug at Braeburn.

This foam-nest tree frog caused some excitement during lunch time play time on Thursday. I found out a bit more about the foam-nest tree frog; the Swahili name for frog is chura and tree is mti..The tree frog would be know as 'chura wa mti'. Did you know that the 'foam' ball that some the tree frog hangs from are in fact nests? This serves as camouflage and helps protect the eggs against drought and predators. Tree frogs are an arboreal which means they live in trees and have special adaptations like toe (adhesive) pads and long legs that aid them in climbing and jumping.
