Frogs but no kisses for TV's Carol Vorderman at Bristol Zoo
TV star Carol Vorderman has opened a new amphibian breeding sanctuary at Bristol Zoo.
Called the AmphiPod, the facility is home to two of the world's most endangered frog species – lemur leaf frogs and golden mantella frogs. Both species are listed as "critically endangered" on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List of threatened species.
The AmphiPod provides the perfect conditions to allow the rare frogs to breed, in an effort to help save the species from extinction.
Miss Vorderman, 49, who co-hosted Channel 4's Countdown for 26 years and has two children at Clifton College, supported the Zoo in its 2008 Year of the Frog campaign to help raise awareness about, and prevent, the extinction threat facing thousands of amphibian species all over the world.

Through fundraising efforts as part of the campaign, Bristol Zoo raised enough money to build the AmphiPod to breed endangered amphibians.
Miss Vorderman said: "I love Bristol Zoo and my mum lives very close by, so I can often hear the monkeys and the exotic birds."
Dr Bryan Carroll, deputy director of the zoo, added: "Our AmphiPod has been built following a lot of hard work, fundraising and fantastic support, and we are immensely grateful for that."
