“Extinct” frog alive and well in Hula Valley

The Hula painted frog was declared extinct in 1996. But, an Israeli park ranger recently found one. Researchers have caught a total of 14 of these frogs since then. Read the story in the Smithsonian’s Smart News here.

There is no word whether this might have been the frog mentioned  in the account of the plagues the LORD sent on Egypt (Exodus 8). :-)

He sent swarms of biting insects against them, as well as frogs that overran their land. (Psalm 78:45 NET)
