ENDANGERED SPECIES
Xenopus Gilli is the most endangered of the xenopus species. Daming of streams and ponds are destroying their natural habitat. It is also causing them to come into contact with Xenopus Laevis and interbreeding is occuring resulting in Laevis-Gilli hybrids. The hybrid males are sterile so it is pushing the true X. Gilli to the brink of extinction. Very little if anything has been done to fix this problem. Do anything you can to bring attention to this dissapearing frog since so little is known about them.
