Frog Species Back from Extinction!

A species thought to be extinct as a result of habitat distruction in the 1950's,  has just been discovered in a pond in Israel. According to USA Today in their article Frog thought to be extinct found in Israel pond  we learn that the Hula painted frog has actually survived in a small pond. Scientists are now scrambling to study them as well as trying to find ways to help these amphibians multiply and eventually be taken off the endanged species list.
