This petite amphibian was not even discovered until 2005, when a team of herpetologists were sent on an expedition to study a deadly fungus that was destroying amphibian populations.

The species once thrived in forest canopies of Central Panama where they leaped from tree to tree with their large webbed feet.

The last of its kind, a male named “Toughie” lived at an exhibit at Atlanta Botanical Garden until his death in September of 2016.
