The Mexican-American War (1846-1848) turned out to be a training episode for a U.S. internal war that began some 13 years afterward. More than 200 combatants who participated in the 1840s conflict became generals during the American Civil War.
In 2005, zoologists traveled to Panama to rescue the endangered Rabbs tree frog. A chytrid fungus (I do not make up these names) was killing the Rabbs population by the thousands.
Hundreds of the threatened frogs were taken to various sites around the United States in order to set up breeding programs and re-establish the species.
