A frog previously thought to be the last survivor of its species is now no longer alone!

Romeo, a Sehuenca water frog, has spent 10 years by himself in an aquarium in Bolivia.

But five other Sehuencas were recently found in a remote forest, giving hope of saving the species. Teresa Camacho Badani, head of the herpetology department at the Alcide d’Orbigny Natural History museum said:

"In total we’ve found five frogs, three males and two females. We’ve chosen Juliet (for Romeo, ed) because she’s the biggest, the other female is smaller, she’s still young."
