TED: Michael Archer: How we'll resurrect the gastric brooding frog, the Tasmanian tiger - Michael Archer (2013): The gastric brooding frog lays its eggs just like any other frog -- then swallows them whole to incubate. That is, it did until it went extinct 30 years ago. Paleontologist Michael Archer makes a case to bring back the gastric brooding frog and the thylacine, commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger.
