Spotted Rubber FrogSpotted Rubber Frog

This beautiful brown frog with red spots is believed to be found only in northern Namibia and southern Angola.  Unfortunately, there is absolutely no information on this frog.  We do not know locations, breeding, calls. Nothing.  In addition, world-wide there has been a huge decline in many frog species.  The exact causes of the decline have not yet been determined, but it is widely believed that it may be due to an introduced fungus killing up to some estimate – 80 % of the frogs worldwide.  We have strong educational programmes started for this species, but REST needs to find funding for major research before this animal goes extinct.
