Endangered or Not, But at Least No Longer Waiting

Perhaps it does not seem cause for celebration that the Oregon spotted frog, a four-inch-long amphibian that prefers the Pacific Northwest's dwindling marshy spots, is to be considered this year for federal protection as an endangered species.

Any time, an animal is saved from extinction; it's a good time.

It's just sad it gets to that point but at least it's caught before it's too late.

Great news, Iain. It makes you feel lots better when things occassionally go well. Love the name Golden Arrow Poison Frog; it would be neat if anyone who tried to hurt it would receive the same reward that skunks give their predators.
