Frog Calling

Officials in Guam are so determined to stop the coqui frog (Eleutherodactylus coqui) from invading their island, they've set up a hotline for people to call if they think they've found one of the Puerto Rican natives. As reported by the Pacific Daily News, GUAMCELL Communications has donated a cell phone and free minutes to the Guam Department of Agriculture to facilitate the project. They're even offering Guam residents the opportunity to download ringtones of the frog's call. Hope that doesn't end up causing concerned residents to head off on a lot of wild good chases!

Bonus points to GUAMCELL for adding a cute hopping frog to their front page.
