Hundreds of Tarahumara frogs were released in a remote canyon Monday after a 40-year absence of the greenish-brown amphibians.
The Arizona Game and Fish Department, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service teamed up on the release.
Biologists will monitor the frogs regularly over the next several years.
The frogs can grow up to 4 ½ inches and have small, dark spots on their bodies.

It’s also a very overstuffed and awkwardly paced one too.

It’s hard to think of many actors from the past few decades who were one of a kind, but Robin Williams was truly a performing force unlike anything that’s ever existed. No one will ever be able to fill his now sadly empty shoes. The fact that his life was taken in such a lonely, horrific fashion after a long struggle with depression only makes this loss more tragic. For now, however, let’s focus on how Williams lived as apposed to how he died. What a life he lived and what an unparalleled career full of laughs, inspiration, and flubber he’s left behind.
