Three Species of ‘Extinct’ Frogs Rediscovered



A global quest to find several “lost” species of amphibians has rediscovered three species that have not been seen for decades, conservation groups announced today.

The so-called “Search for the Lost Frogs” is attempting to find 100 species of amphibians that had been thought extinct, but that scientists believe may be surviving in small populations.

The three animals that have been rediscovered so far include a Mexican salamander not seen since it was discovered in 1941, a frog from the Ivory Coast (the Mount Nimba Reed Frog) missing since 1967 and another frog from the Democratic Republic of Congo (the Omaniundu Reed Frog) lost since 1979.
