Caption: This illustration shows a Southern gastric-brooding frog, Rheobatrachus silus, giving birth in its mountain rainforest habitat in Queensland. The frog in the foreground is another frog that has also gone extinct in the same area, the Southern day frog, Taudactylus diurnus. The crayfish is Euastacus hystricosus, an endangered crustacean.
