A Frog That Fits on Your Fingertip
Small enough to fit on the tip of a finger, a lemur leaf frog mugs for the camera behind the scenes at the Bronx Zoo.
The frogs will be part of a new Panama collection at the Zoo’s World of Reptiles.
In the wild, these frogs are critically endangered due in part to the rapid appearance of Chytridiomycosis ??? a fungal disease that has devastated amphibians across the planet, with as many as 30 percent of the world’s frog species infected.
