is that frog what I think it is?
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.
Thank you for the photos. I love the Toronto zoo, its a lot of walking though. my feet were tired after 20 mins :wall:
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.
It is a tough walk
We usually go every year

The zoo by me is opening a new Africa exhibit too, on June 6th.
