EDGE: Betic midwife toad (Alytes dickhilleni)

The Betic midwife toad is found in a number of isolated and fragmented populations around the mountains of southeastern Spain, occurring at altitudes of up to 2,140 metres above sea level. Females lay a string of eggs that the male wraps around his hind legs, carries until they are ready to hatch, and finally deposits in a pool of water where the tadpoles remain for up to a year.
