Costa Rican ‘extinct’ frog rediscovered


This video is called Waterfall at the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Costa Rica.

Not just good frog news from Australia today.

Also from Costa Rica (with video):

An extremely rare female frog has been spotted for the first time in 20 years.

The tiny tree frog, Isthmohyla rivularis, was seen in Costa Rica’s Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve.

This species was thought to have become extinct two decades ago, but last year a University of Manchester researcher caught a glimpse of a male.

However, the discovery of the female and more males suggests this species is breeding and has been able to survive where many other frogs have not.
