First-known footage of rare frog

An incredibly rare frog has been filmed for the first time, scientists believe.

The red-eyed stream frog is found in Costa Rica and is critically endangered.

Andrew Gray, from the University of Manchester, was one of the team who spotted the frog.

The BBC is following the researchers in Costa Rica working on frog conservation.
