The Quarantine Department is currently monitoring a new type of frog found last week in downtown Nuku’alofa.

It is believed the unidentified species was from an overseas country although there was no specification.

It is believed it was from a hardware store in town.

Public are warned to be cautious because Quarantine does not know if there are more out there.
