Field studies suggest up to 85 percent of all the amphibians on Toughie's home turf were wiped out.

Learn about the increasing pace of extinctions.
Mandica's son, then a two-year-old, dubbed the last survivor Toughie. Naming animals isn't the norm among scientists, but the frog's popularity as the last of his kind meant that people and the press kept demanding a name—and Toughie stuck. Although he gave voice to the plight of endangered species, Toughie was silent for all the years he lived at the botanical garden, until one fateful morning in when Mandica captured the only existing example of the Rabbs' fringe-limbed tree frog's call.
I was able to sneak in and record him on my phone. Photographer Joel Sartore recalls a curious, baseball-size creature with amazing eyes that actually hopped up onto his camera while being photographed for the Photo Ark project.
Photo Ark aims to showcase our planet's incredible biodiversity and inspire people to help fight the extinction crisis while there is still time. So far, Sartore has photographed more than 6, species. Unfortunately, many others also represent the end of the line for their kind. I keep thinking, OK, this is the one. This animal's story is going to do it and get people to care more about extinction than about what's on TV.

Great looking amphibian housing! I partially buried a few pots a couple years ago and was amazed how quickly slug-eating residents moved in.

However they pretty quickly cracked and broke. Now I pile up some flat stones and the like in a safe place, in such a way that predators would have a hard time getting in. Hi, Mike, nice to see your here. I just needed a use for this particular pot. Stones would work,unless Mr. Great suggestions.
