Today starts a brief series on the California Academy of Science in San Francisco.  Every so often I share some vacation photos just to mix things up a bit. The CAS is an aquarium, planetarium and national history museum all under on roof. Above is a reindeer which of course I had to feature since my visit was right after Christmas. He must be hungry after helping Santa. Below is the Waxy Monkey Tree Frog. Instead of hopping these frogs grab branches and moves like a monkey through the trees. Secretions coat its skin giving a waxy appearance and preventing water loss. It lives in “The chaco” (dry prairie) of Agentina, Brazil or Bolivia. I waited for quite awhile but the frog wouldn’t directly face me but even at this angle it looks awesome.
