"Almost a year after the zoologists in Bolivia sent out a plea to save an endangered frog, scientists have been feeding. And it is so far only known specimen has scored a partner."
"Vattengrodan Romeo has been a bachelor for ten years, and completely alone been looking for love and the chance to multiply. He was feared to be the last remaining frog by its nature, Sehuencas, and the hope that he would be able to reproduce before he died has declined for each year that has passed."
"In a last attempt to save the species sent zoologists on valentine's day last year out a plea for money to the lonely Romeo, and the response was so large that it could fund an expedition to the Bolivian rainforest. Where managed a group of scientists from Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC) and the natural history museum in Cochabamba, find more specimens of the endangered species. And Romeo got his Julia."
"– It's a great feeling to know that thanks to all those who believe in true love, we have found a partner for Romeo, and can initiate a befruktningsprogram, says expeditionsledaren Teresa Camacho."
"Sehuencas-the frog only live up to 15 years, so the jump was almost out of Romeo, and with him the entire species. It was only Romeo himself who had not given up hope, he continued during all the years in solitude with his mating calls to attract a female."
