Biologists exploring the outer reaches of Madagascar were very excited when they discovered what they thought was a new species of frog. But the excitement soon turned to amazement when their new discovery turned out to be an orange.
“We really thought we had found a frog,” admitted Chief Biologist, Dr Russell Ingleeves (51). “But we soon realized our error when one of the locals began to peel it.
“Turns out it was a frog-shaped Clementine, a kind of seedless orange.”
At first the doctor and his team believed that their find was still valid as being a remarkable discovery.
“We all congratulated each other… I mean none of us had ever seen a frog-shaped orange before, so we thought what we found was amazing.
“But then the locals put us right, it seems these frog-shaped Clementines are not very rare at all, in fact they are everywhere. Around here they really do grow on trees.”
