Hoppping With Joy - Borneon Rainbow Toad Found

Not only the scientists all over the world are hopping with joy, I am also joyful and grateful to our Almighty God for the re-discovery of the Borneon Rainbow toad at the outskirt of Kuching city, at a place called Penrissen. By road from Kuching Penrissen is about 30 Km, but the place where this toad is found is deep in the mountain range.

This toad was last seen in 1924, and after 87 years it has now been sighted and photos taken of this thought extinct toad. Praise God for this discovery as well as our local researcher Dr.Indraneil Das who is a researcher with University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS), Kuching.

The news of this discovery is carried by newspapers all over the world, like CNN, BBC, National Geographic and others.
