This vibrant silk scarf commemorates the Rabb's fringe-limbed tree frog and species with which it was found in the Valle de San Anton of Panama. This extraordinary species, which was declared extinct on September 26, 2016, could sail through the air, change colours, and had an incredible way of providing snacks for its tadpoles.
