'Lost' toad rediscovered in Borneo

(CNN) - A toad which hasn't been observed in the wild for almost a century has been rediscovered by researchers in Malaysian Borneo.

Last seen 87 years ago, the Bornean Rainbow Toad (also called the Sambas Stream Toad) was found in forests in the Gunung Penrissen mountain range in Sarawak State.

The discovery was part of a wider 'lost' amphibian search launched by Conservation International and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) last year, which involved 126 researchers working in 21 countries on five continents.
