Conservationists in Bolivia are scouring the country to find a mate for a childless frog who they fear may be the last of his species.
Romeo, a 10-year-old Sehuencas water frog, has been calling in vain for a mate for the past nine years.
A dating website donated to the search, and even gave him a profile that says he is “looking for my Juliet”.
Scientists are now searching streams and rivers for a female with whom a breeding programme can be started.
“We don’t want him to lose hope,” Arturo Munoz, a conservation scientist, told AFP news agency.
“We continue to remain hopeful that others are out there so we can establish a conservation breeding programme to save this species,” he said.
