I had an amazing time visiting the Colham Ferry Elementary School and talking with these amazing kids about Flatwoods Salamanders. I really love visiting local schools and getting kids jazzed about #salamanders — All the school has to do is put a huge Flatwoods Salamander sign up in front of the school and I'll be there. That is #AmphibiousAF http://ift.tt/2DRm6kq #FlatwoodsSalamander #Ambystoma

The #SexuallyDimorphic #Ecnomiohyla valancifer is a #CriticallyEndangered species native to Mexico. The male has enlarged arms compared to the female, which makes them easily distinguishable as adults.

Last week, through our partners @ #FFWCC we were able to hatch 344 Frosted #FlatwoodsSalamander eggs in our #SalamanderLab — This imperiled species is the #1 priority at the Amphibian Foundation, which houses the only captive colony on the planet! Most of the larvae will be permanently housed outdoors in our 20 #mesocosms (artificial wetlands) where we can rear them into adulthood in 'semi-wild' conditions. That, my friends, is #AmphibiousAF #Ambystoma #Ambystomacingulatum

#RIPPrincess our amazing ambassador Cane Toad. She was a handsome toad, beloved by all, and reached the hearts of many. We were lucky to know her at all. Thank you Cyndi and Reigning Reptiles for donating her to the Amphibian Foundation! She was the definition of #AmphibiousAF #Rhinella #Rhinellamarina #Bufo #Bufonidae #CaneToad #GiantToad #MarineToad #Princess
