About

A web site about the critically endangered Kihansi spray toad (Nectophrynoides asperginis) once found in the Udzungwa Mountains of Tanzania but currently spending some time at the Bronx Zoo before their return. Also a collection of interviews, stories, photographs, links, quotes, and literary references concerning amphibian extinction, conservation efforts, and biology (Nature). Also a travel log. Assembled for you by journalist M.R. O’Connor. The word “Lissamphibia” describes the taxonomic subclass encompassing living amphibians and their extinct relatives coined by famed German biologist Ernst Haeckel in 1866.
