New frog named after prince

Prince Charles has had a frog named after him. The Ecuadorian stream frog was only discovered recently and was named after the prince in recognition of his conservation efforts.

At the naming ceremony at Highgrove, Gloucestershire, Prince Charles was presented with a glass replica of the frog.

Watching the event were more than 70 children who were taking part in an environmental summit at the Prince's home. They had decorated pandas with the theme of 'the future we want' and also sang Prince Charles a song about saving energy.
