    ‘A frog dubbed "the world's loneliest" has a blind date coming up, after researchers found more members of his species.

    Romeo was found 10 years ago in the cloud forests of Bolivia and, according to Global Wildlife Conservation, was thought to be the last Sehuencas water frog on the planet.

    Last year an online dating profile was started in his name and he joined Twitter as
    Romeo the World's Loneliest Frog
    .

    But researchers — including Teresa Camacho Badani of the Alcide d'Orbigny Museum of Natural History, who found Romeo in 2008 — have now discovered five new Sehuencas frogs, including two females.

    One of them is a suitable potential mate for Romeo and, perhaps unsurprisingly, has been named Juliet.’
