This endangered species of amphibian, is known as the 'chicken frog'. Conservation group 'Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust' adopted 12 of the rare creatures after illness all but wiped out their population in Montserrat.
In this footage, a mother chicken frog is seen feeding her young. The scientists shot the images of the females releasing unfertilised eggs so their tadpoles could feast on them.
According to Durrell Conversationists, "It is normally such a private and secretive moment that we never thought we would be able to capture it with such clarity... These are incredible images that show us a new facet of their behaviour as we race to save them from extinction."
Once fully grown and healthy, the frogs bred in captivity will be released back into the wild.
