World’s ‘rarest tree frog’ found!

Picture 289Andrew and the team have found what they were looking for – a female Isthmohyla rivularis alive and well in the Costa Rican cloud forest of Monteverde. They also found some more males of this species giving hope that they are surviving and breeding there. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7609780.stm

This species was thought extinct for 20 years until Andrew found a single male when he was there last year. (See previous post for this story)
