From the rocky streams of coastal Australia to the jungles of South America, and even to the American West, the world's frogs are mysteriously vanishing at alarming rates. Frogs and their relatives have thrived on earth for more than 360 million years, but now they're under serious threat. Experts believe that as many as one-third to one-half of the planet's 6,000 amphibian species are in danger of disappearing--victims of one of the most significant mass extinctions since the dinosaurs. Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin embarks on a worldwide mission to uncover clues to the frog's deadly plight.
