Dozens of Poisonous Frogs Recovered from Airport Bathroom in Smuggling Bust
Police in Bogota say they have recovered more than 200 poisonous frogs from an airport bathroom, just before they were to be smuggled out of the country. The frogs had been stowed in small black film containers, and tucked into luggage. Some of the frogs were very rare, like the critically endangered Lehmann's poison frog. The Lehmann's poison frog, which is native to Colombia's Pacific coast, can fetch as much as $2,000 in illegal wildlife markets.
