Puerto Rican Crested Toad

We just learned about the Wyoming Toad.

Another type of frog is the Puerto Rican Crested Toad.
This is a true toad that only lives in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

At one time scientists thought these frogs were extinct, but then in 1966 some were found, and so the zoos and aquariums worked to help bring the frogs back by releasing over 260,000 tadpoles in the last 20 years.
