Default GB Press: World's rarest tree frog found

From the BBC News website, a couple of interesting links bellow the main video.


"An extremely rare female frog has been spotted for the first time in 20 years.
The tiny amphibian, Isthmohyla rivularis, is carrying eggs, suggesting that the species is doing well. The discovery was filmed by the BBC in the Costa Rican jungle as part of a scientific expedition with a team from Manchester University and Chester Zoo as they work on conservation programmes for rare frogs."

I watched that early this morning. I don't think much of the way he handled the frog - the frog didn't stay on his glove and he patted the back of one of the people he was with. For people trying to avoid spreading chytrid it seems rather half-assed.
