Jabba the African bullfrog has gone viral!
A 15-second unedited video taken by Toni Kingston while he was helping kids interact with Jabba our frog ambassador has got over 5.4M views (as of today) on Instagram.
Jabba is a unique animal of ours. He’s not an eye candy type of critter that makes people say “Ahhh so cute” like our hedgehogs or baby chinchillas do. He doesn’t make much people exaggerate their facial expressions like our snakes and tarantulas do. But he’s the only one that causes people to keep saying both “Yuck! He’s so ugly” and “Can I hold him now? Can I give him a kiss?” at the same time. Pure contradiction 🙂
When it comes to presenting these not-so-good-looking critters, it tests the skills and experience of the presenter. You can either make people hate it more or change their mind to start appreciating something they’ve disliked for a lifetime.
These critically endangered creatures hold a mystical and unique position in the science field. They are one of very few creatures on earth that exhibits neoteny. Ladies might want to learn from axolotls – they look like a juvenile all life long Also the ability to regenerate lost body parts is speechless.
