There’s still hope: Researchers find mate for world’s loneliest frog

Who says ‘dating apps’ don’t work? Remember last year when the world found out about Romeo, a Sehuencas water frog in Bolivia and his lonely life? Romeo, a ‘family-less’ Sehuencas water frog was said to be the last of his species – after his death the species was supposed to be extinct.

Conservationists soon created a profile for Romeo on Match, the world’s largest dating company. Soon enough, the internet found out about him and money to help him find a match came pouring in. The expedition, which was launched in November, has found 5 more of his species in a Bolivian cloud forest, one of them being Juliet, a life and mating partner for Romeo.

The recently found frogs have been quarantined to allow them to adapt to their new surroundings. The joyous union is scheduled for 14th February, 2019.
