Meet Lloyd the tree frog who was discovered 5,000 miles from home in a Netherfield supermarket

This is the tiny little tree frog who travelled more than 5,000 miles before being found on a bunch of bananas in Lidl supermarket in Netherfield

He was discovered in the store on Great Northern Way by supermarket workers as they unpacked fruit.

Unsure of what to do with the amphibian discovery, they called the RSPCA.

Animal Collection Officer (ACO) Hayley Day was sent to the scene on Sunday (12).

She said: “The little tree frog was sat on top of some of bananas which staff had started to unload and put on the shelves.

“I managed to get him inside a box with wet tissue paper inside to keep him moist.

“Staff seemed quite taken with him and called him Lloyd – he must have also had quite the shock when he emerged in a Nottinghamshire supermarket considering he’s used to more tropical climates usually!”

ACO Day took the tree frog to a specialist keeper who will now look after him and he confirmed Lloyd originates from Costa Rica – more than 5,000 miles away from Netherfield.
