Back in 2009, #amphibians like #frogs, #toads and #salamanders were "being decimated by the worst infectious disease ever recorded among wildlife." In our May issue that year, we covered why those effects were important to #retailers and what the #pet industry could do to fight the threat. #tbt #ThrowbackThursday #wildlife #frog

  • femmeasfuckWhat was it!? Is there an online copy?
  • petagemag@femmeasfuck Unfortunately, that issue is not online. But according to the print version of the article, the disease was chytrid fungus. It came to international attention in 1999 and flourishes in moist, cool habitats. In 2009, it was reported that the disease resulted in the disappearance of about 50 percent of amphibian species wherever it thrived. Hope that helps!
