Hello Amphibian Scientists/Biologists:

Most of you have heard about Bsal (Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans).  Thought Id share a fun rap video that some of our students in the UT Center for Wildlife Health put together on this pathogen:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EOKOR0vL8lM

They created it as part of a 3-min video UT competition to highlight student research.  If you like it, you can vote here (it is video 2).

https://ugresearch.utk.edu/research-week/3-minutes-to-win-it-research-challenge/2018-3-minutes-to-win-it-video-submissions/ (deadline for voting is Fri, 2 April).

Please feel free to post and distribute.  Possibly an alternative way to make the public aware of this recently discovered, emerging pathogen.

All the Best, Matt
