The #1 tourist attraction in Key West is the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservancy, and since we enjoy seeing butterflies we thought we'd stop in. We have noticed that a few of the popular tourist destinations in The Keys are overpriced money grabs, but were pleasantly surprised at how well designed and maintained this butterfly observatory was.
In the foyer before entering the observatory there was some general information about butterflies and the observatory, and a few terrariums with various tropical amphibians, including this "Pacman Frog". Now I am sure that this frog was around way before the Pacman video game, but the name seems to fit this squat little fellow.
