A new study shows that many frogs are in danger of becoming extinct.

FOX News Radio's Hank Weinbloom reports:

"It's not that easy being green."

And according to one biologist, it's no fun being a frog.


A study in the Journal Nature finds about a third of all species of frogs and other amphibians are in danger of extinction.

Three reasons are cited; fewer habitats for them to live around the world due to development, climate change, and a fungus that's killing them.  Here in the U.S., the study says frogs in the Rockies and the Sierra Nevadas are threatened.  But some scientists say Kermit and his friends shouldn't worry that much, they say the picture painted in this article is overly bleak.
