frog legs and strawberries
A woman preparing last night's dinner lost her appetite when she went to the fridge and found a... tropical tree FROG.
Donna Hunt, 32, screamed as the creature leapt onto the kitchen floor and hopped about as her husband Steve, 46, scrambled around trying to catch it.
It is believed the frog was concealed among the groceries she had bought earlier in the day from Tesco's and put in the fridge.
Donna, from Tuffley, Gloucester, said: 'I saw what I thought was a mouldy strawberry at the bottom of the fridge. I went to get it and it was all slimy and was moving about.
'I screamed and got my husband to come and check it and then found out it was a frog.
'He realised straight away that it wasn't native to Britain because it had big pads on its feet. My husband was very excited, he loves animals. But I was absolutely terrified.'
The couple believe the frog had been hiding in either the strawberries, mixed salad or celery which they had bought at Tesco in Quedgeley.
