What fascinating creatures! Their abdomen's are translucent so that their intestines are visible through their skin, and they give birth to live offspring, which they carry on their back! I hope they're here to stay!

Hope they survive this time.

If they survive it will be wonderful. However, since pesticide exposure and the emergence of infective chytrid fungus were partly responsible for the Kihansi spray toad's demise in the first place, can we be sure that the reintroduced amphibians will not be confronted with the same pesticides and fungus yet again?

Amphibians are the barometer of the wetlands.
