Toughie the last Rabb’s Fringed Limbed Tree Frog has died. He lived in the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. No Rabb’s Fringe Limbed Tree Frog has been observed in the wild since 2007. Chytrid fungus wiped out the rest of the frogs. They are not sure how Toughie died because they harvested genetic info from his body.
