What do you do when you're a Panamanian golden frog
and you need to let that certain special someone across the way know you're, um, interested? Sure, you could croak a few sweet nothings in her ear, but those rushing jungle streams can drown out even the most virile of frog voices. So, you... wave
! Yeah, give her a little wave! A BBC film crew has captured footage of this rare (and, according to their article, now extinct) amphibian waving, fighting and mating
. [NOTE: last link includes hot froggy ménage à trois. Surely NSFW!]
Here's a National Geographic
documentary on earlier efforts to treat the Chytrid fungus-induced disease that has decimated the golden frog population.
