A tree frog from Costa Rica traveled 8,500 kilometers. He now lives in England. He was hidden in cargo of bananas and found as supermarket workers were unpacking the fruit in Nottingham.
The employees became very fond of the creature and named him Lloyd. Lloyd was checked by a veterinarian of exotic animals and confirmed to be in good condition. A specialist keeper will look after him.
An officer of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said that “Lloyd must also have had quite an impact when he emerged in a supermarket in Nottinghamshire, considering that he is usually used to more tropical climates.”
There are 800 species of tree frogs, 600 of which live in Central and South America. They are found in a variety of colors and some change colors to blend in with their surroundings.
