Banana Frog

This little frog ended up taking a surprise 5,000 mile trip, when it was discovered hiding in a bunch of bananas at a supermarket in Llanelli, in Wales, UK.

It's thought the frog originally came from Colombia, where lots of bananas are grown, before being transported to be sold to the UK.

The frog, which has been nicknamed 'Asda', was then cared for by specialists in Pembrokeshire.

Amphibians, like frogs, are pretty clever, they can slow down their metabolism in certain environmental situations, meaning they don't need to eat or drink for a long period of time - scientists think this is how 'Asda' survived the long journey.
