Meet our newly named frogs, Prince and Belinda

On November 8, 2016, we held our very own special election, where visitors and followers of the Museum & Theatre had an opportunity to vote on names for our newest live animals. We’re happy to announce that our two American Bullfrogs officially have names, Belinda (female) and Prince (male). Now we can officially say that we have our very own frog Prince right here!

We had a great selection of names to choose from, given to us by visitors and through online submissions. We hope you’ll visit us and stop by to officially meet Belinda and Prince.

Help name our frogs for a chance to win passes to the Museum & Theatre

They may not be our “furry” friends, but they are definitely our friends. Two American Bullfrogs have joined our Ranger Station and are the newest live animal exhibit that the Museum & Theatre has. We love that this is their new home, but the only problem is that they don’t have names yet! We thought that since Election Day is approaching, we would give our explorers a chance to cast their very own ballot…and help us name our amphibian friends.

We’ll be collecting name suggestions through Monday, November 7. Then, our Frog Naming Council will narrow it down to just four names. We’ll then invite our explorers to vote on their favorite names on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8. Votes can be cast at our “Tad Poles” polling area in the building, and we’ll post it online through our website and social media channels. We’ll be sure to announce the winning names the next day. Plus, those who submitted winning names will win two free passes to the Children’s Museum & Theatre!

You can use the form below to send us your name suggestions, comment on our Facebook page, or come in and tell us in person! We’re confident that we’ll end up with the perfect names.

Dates to watch:

  • Now through Monday, November 7: Write in your name suggestions for our frogs!
  • Tuesday, November 8 (Election Day): Vote online or in person for your favorite name!
  • Wednesday, November 9: Winning names to be announced and winner to be contacted for Museum & Theatre passes.
