Here are some interesting statistics -- according to a report jointly issued by Conservation International, The World Conservation Union, and Nature Serve:
Colombia is home to 698 unique amphibian species.
- 648 -- frogs and toads
- 19 -- salamanders
- 31 -- caecilians
Colombia also has the largest number of threatened amphibian species in the world with 208 -- that means about 30% of the amphibian species in Colombia are in threat of extinction.
- 50 species are critically endangered
- 78 species are endangered
- 80 species are threatened
An additional 48 species are considered near threatened.
