Romeo, the loneest frog in the world, may have finally found Juliet that can save him



Scientists have found a potential partner for Romeo, the water frog Sehuencas, which has been alone and single for the past 10 years. Placed at a museum in Bolivia, Romeo was considered the last living water frog of this kind.

Now Romeo and his love interest – which scientists call Juliet, of course – will be put on a blind date this Day of Sts. Valentine as part of an effort to save their species.

No pressure, kids.

  Juliet was found last month in a Bolivian cloud forest.

It all began when Bolivia Alcidee was a natural history The museum collaborated with Global Wildlife Conservation to raise money to search for a friend for Romeo.

Theologist Theresa Kamacho headed a frog search expedition last month through the cloud forest of Bolivia. She and her team would press their hands in bays and feel water frogs, as creatures can not easily be noticed where they live – underwater. "We were tired, wet and disappointed," says Kamacho, who thinks that climate change and polluted waterways have made Sehuencas's water frog disappear. "Then I said," Let's make another river. "

Then he noticed there was a frog jump in the water. It was not the kind he was looking for, but he brought her to a small waterfall … and there he was – an orange-fluffy frog in the shower. The team jumped out of joy, but that was not their Juliet.

It was a male frog.

  Juliet is more active than Romeo, who is shy and ... a little fluffy.

Juliet is at the perfect age for breeding. The rest are younger and not yet ready.

She's also … pretty sweet.

"She has beautiful eyes," the director of the Museum of Alsace or Orbini, Ricardo Sespedes, tells Juliet, who is quarantined to laboratory tests. Scientists have to make sure that she is free from the dangerous influenza crotch, which is known to have killed whole frog populations before meeting Romeo.

But Romeo and Juliet may not be compatible.
