Snapchatting Shedd Aquarium's new 'Amphibians' exhibit

RedEye was invited to attend Shedd Aquarium's new "Amphibians" exhibit, so naturally we decided to create a curated Snapchat story on our experience there.

Since Snapchat lends itself well to fully exploring one's creativity, it was a natural fit to cover the diverse and fascinating world of these cold-blooded creatures. Tim Binder, Executive Vice President of animal care at Shedd Aquarium, said that "'Amphibians' is not only fun, but the exhibit creates meaningful connections that show how human activity affects their behavior."

We documented our "human activity" with the amphibians via Snapchat, and the creatures gave us quite a warm welcome. Surprising for amphibians, but we'll take it!

The exhibit features more than 40 species of salamanders, newts, frogs and a few other rare creatures, all leaping and hopping toward the public opening May 16.
