A frog has been found hiding in a bunch of bananas on a shelf in a Northampton Tesco.

The amphibian, nicknamed ‘Juan’ by RSPCA staff, is thought to have travelled all the way from Ecuador where the fruit was picked before being shipped to the UK.

It was shop workers who spotted ‘Juan’ and alerted the RSPCA who collected the frog and moved him to a care of exotic animal specialist.

“In my role I never quite know what I’m going to get called out to, or indeed where, but when ‘frog in Tesco’ appeared on my list of jobs, it was a bit of a surprise!

Greg Hagen, Animal Collection Officer (ACO)

A specialist keeper is now caring for ‘Juan’ and says that he is probably a type of tree frog.
