I saw Mark Moffett (that’s not him in the photo) on The Colbert Report talking about his new book, Face to Face with Frogs. Mr. Moffett said that frogs are on the fastest road to extinction due to climate change. Many species have now become extinct.
I was terrorized with a plastic but realistic-looking frog (and snake) by our eldest sister when I was young. Coupled with another traumatic experience with the humongous frog on the left during a Florida vacation, I am no fan of frogs but I do not wish to see them wiped out.
2008 was declared the Year of the Frog in an attempt to save these endangered amphibians.
