Beneath cascading water, a man catches a rare Goliath frog. Reaching lengths of 90cm, the Goliath is the largest known frog. In western central Africa, it inhabits swiftly-moving mountain streams. Prized by local tribes as food, the survival of the species is under threat. Its habitat is also in danger of disappearing, as rainforests are cleared for farms or villages.
