Frogs and Toads

Now an international team of scientists is one step closer in working out how the rainforest toad morphed into an invasive machine in just 80 years.

A decade after chytridiomycosis killed scores of amphibians in Panama, some species are recovering. New research indicates why.

Talk about toxic relationships. An invasive species of toad in Madagascar is even more dangerous to local wildlife than previously suspected — its poisonous slime is deadly to just about any local predator, including endangered lemurs, that tries to eat the amphibian.
