Laramie, Wy – The Wyoming Toad, which is an endangered species, recently got a helping hand from biologists in Tennessee. Staff at the Memphis Zoo artificially inseminated Wyoming Toad eggs. This is the first time this has ever been done with an endangered toad and Doctor Andy Kouba says it will go a long ways towards getting the animal off the endangered species list.
All together this project produced 17 hundred tadpoles. Kouba says they've been released into the wild in Southeastern Wyoming. He says they will try this again next year and hope to get even more tadpoles.
