Biologists in Tasmania have announced they have have discovered a rare tree frog in the wilds of Tasmania. “The frog does have some distinctive colouration, mainly a large band of yellow around the neck” said one excited scientist, “but it doesn’t appear to have any effect on it’s mating ritual.”
The ritual itself involves the female frog choosing a partner that has the largest nest and genitalia. But that’s not the strangest thing about this new frog.
“It has to do with it’s very distinctive croaking. For some reason a lot of other frogs in the forest find it offensive and shun this particular frog, even though they have no idea what it is saying. In fact we think it’s possible that even the frog itself has no idea what it is saying.”
Biologists have decided to name it the Jacqui Frog.
