African Belching Frog
Professor Jurgen Kreeper has been named this year's recipient of the Nobel Prize for Amphibians in recognition of his discovery of the African belching frog. Accepting his award in the car park of a largely derelict retail park near Luton, the celebrated zoologist recalled that fateful day when he first encountered the extraordinary creature.
"I was punting a kayak up the Zambezi," he told the press, "and as I hunched down to pass under an overhanging branch, I heard a loud croak, felt a warm blast on the back of my neck and my hat blew off. It was a deeply emotional moment."
