Hop on over to our collection of living frogs, featuring everything from the aptly named Giant African Bullfrog, and exotic Amazon Milk Frogs, to an array including Vietnamese Mossy Frogs, Surinam Toads and many more.

Scrutinize a fascinating variety of skulls of different animal species from around the globe – from a killer whale and Mountain gorilla to black rhino, among many others – and wander through the Fossil Forest to discover the Zuhl Collection of Petrified Wood, featuring stunningly preserved slices of ancient trees that tell the dramatic tale of their history and environment.

Please help us to preserve our collections for the next generation by not using flash when taking personal pictures at HMNS and at HMNS Sugar Land. Exposure to strong lights over time causes fading and deterioration of most artifacts and specimens.

Flash photography is ONLY allowed in the Grand Hall and the rainforest of the Cockrell Butterfly Center.

Selfie sticks are not allowed anywhere in HMNS, HMNS Sugar Land and the George Observatory.

For press and any commercial photo shoots, please contact the Public Relations dept.
