Zooillogix

We know this story has been covered by everyone from LiveScience to Perez Hilton, but we thought we’d do our part as well to promote awareness.

Chinese giant salamander….very tasty.

An initiative known as EDGE (Excited Dachshunds Grinding with the Elderly) has released its list of unique and critically endangered amphibians, hot on the heels of their steamy, after hours EDGE Mammals edition.

The initiative is a part of the…

…Zoological Society of London, who made the announcement yesterday. The endangered amphibians come in all shapes and sizes from the giant salamanders of China to, Zooillogix favorites, the legless, worm-like caecilians to the crowd-pleasing Malagasy rainbow frog.

Here are some more pics of our mud-loving friends.

    To the rainbow frog: Look Ma! No brains!
    Sorry, that’s always our comment to anyone not wearing his helmet. I don’t think they make helmets big enough for that Chinese Giant Salamander though. Wow, that’s one big old amphibian.

    If someone could come up with that same pretty color scheme on a helmet maybe we will have them around so future generations can enjoy them too?

    Purple frogs are proof that there is no God? i don’t get it. that frog doesn’t look very purple to me. it looks brown. and did the bible say that purple frogs didn’t exist or something? if that was a joke, and i’m missing it, please explain.
