Hypsboas Pellucens = endangered species

2008 is named the year of the frog by Conservationists. Up to half of the world's 6,000 amphibian species are in danger of extinction. All are being affected by habitat loss, pollution, climate change, pesticides and introduced species. An even bigger threat is the deadly parasite fungus known as amphibian chytrid.

First photo is the painted frog on the fabric background.



Second photo is the frog with the background enhanced with stitching, then framed in velvet.


Third photo is to try and show the dimension of the piece.
