Brief Summary

Read full entry


The golden toad has not been seen since 1989, and is believed to be extinct (1). This toad displays extreme sexual dimorphism; males are a brilliant orange colour but females are dark and mottled with yellow-edged red blotches. Females also tend to be slightly larger than males. In juveniles, however, the sexes cannot be determined as they are very similar (2).
