A Tiny Golden Frog as Rare as It Is Small

Living within just 4 square miles of swampland in Madagascar, wild golden mantellas are a rare frog species. Measuring a mighty one-inch long when full grown, these bright yellow amphibians are surprisingly tough to spot in their native habitat. Though they have few natural predators, collection for the pet trade coupled with deforestation has dramatically affected their population, rendering this frog critically endangered.
