Frog resists disease, fights back

Armoured mistfrog — is that the coolest name for an amphibian ever?

Sadly it's not the latest family of WoW pets, or even a new mount, it's just an Australian frog once thought to be extinct. This remarkable little croaker has apparently shirked off a nasty fungus that is decimating frog populations globally to make its comeback. Three cheers for amphibian resilience!

Now I want one in WoW. This would make the most amazing Troll racial mount. Or an exotic pet — complete with tongue lash or deafening croak. Gief frogs!
