Frogs, Romeo and Juliet, Dating to Save Species

More is at stake for frogs Romeo and Juliet’s first date than just their hearts.

He was once known as “the world’s loneliest frog.” Not only because he had been by himself in an aquarium tank for 10 years, but it was believed he was the last of his kind. That is until Juliet was discovered during an expedition. Now, they have a chance at finding love and, perhaps more importantly, saving the species.

Since first meeting in a neutral space, they’ve moved into Romeo’s tank, and they are finding their footing as an underwater couple. Although, Romeo seems to have already put his bachelor life behind him. He apparently is constantly following Juliet around the aquarium and even shares his worms with her. We hope a family of tadpoles is on the way for them soon.
