A rare species of "fanged" frog only discovered last year in South East Asia could be at risk from climate change, according to the World Wildlife Fund.

Researchers said the frog, as well as more than 150 other species discovered in the Mekong River region in 2008, was under threat as increasing instances of droughts and floods in the area damaged the habitat.
