    I don't remember what it was called, but I believe your thinking it's a poison dart frog? I'm thinking that's waht it is as well.

    You're probably thinking it's a Golden frog. I'm pretty sure that's what it is. I haven't been into herps for many years but I believe the zoo had a group of them and it was considered quite a coup to acquire them when they did.
    They are extremely endangered and were thought to be extinct a few years ago. I believe a population has been found recently though.

    Golden Toads are extinct...there have been no new populations.
    That is a yellow or gold Atelopus frog....not to be confused with the Golden Toads of Costa Rica which are gone.

    Sorry about that:8o you are correct. About 20 years ago I knew a couple of people at the zoo and I was under the impression that they had collected a small group before they dissapeared and it was something they were very excited about. Perhaps my memory isn't as good as it could be.

    Actually the golden frog (Atelopus zeteki) was also thought to be extinct as well for a point now it is critically endangered, so you guys are both right.
