The Bururi long-fingered frog has been found alive and well in Africa having not been seen since 1949.
Feared extinct, a member of this rare species was picked up during a biodiversity study in the region. "The last time this species was seen was the first time this species was seen - that's the state of our knowledge in this little corner of Africa," said team member David Blackburn. The frog gets its name from having an unusually elongated finger on each hand.
