     =The actual story is a bit more complicated than that.  As Darren 
     =pointed out, the golden toad (of central america, not south) has 
     =apparently disappeared.

I would like to point out that there is a North America and a South America but 
no Central America continent.  Can we say North American ithmus, or name the 
country of origin, rather than continue to mislabel a land area that is as 
misleading as Europe separated from Asia in continent counts?  Please?
That would then make the North American Golden Toad easier to find for properly 
brought up school kids.
