Frog from Ethiopia makes 6,000-mile trip in bag of mint

Recently, a surprised customer found a frog that took a 6,000-mile trip from Africa to Northumberland in a bag of fresh mint. The little animal was discovered after being sold by a fruit and vegetable store in Corbridge, and had been hidden in a sealed bag of the leaves imported from Ethiopia. The shop owner contacted the RSPCA after a customer made the unusual discovery at home.

The frog, which is now known as ‘Minty’, is being cared for by RSPCA inspector Lucy Green, who has tried to establish what species he is.  She emailed a picture of the frog to a specialist exotics centre in West Yorkshire, where he will eventually be looked after.
