A rare lemur leaf frog from Costa Rica is thriving in Manchester, England. The leaf frogs were found by the head of a vivarium, Andrew Gray, who imported 12 of the amphibians from Costa Rica. The vivarium is in Manchester Museum, and is part of Manchester University. The frogs have bred successfully, and there are 85 frogs at the vivarium. They are so rare in Costa Rica that they were believed to be extinct.
