Why has 'Tony' the frog gone viral?
"Hi I'm Simon Curtis, and I found Tony the frog in my box of romaine lettuce."

Simon decided to name the stowaway frog 'Tony'
He sought advice on Twitter on what to do with the frog
as it was a chilly 28°F outside and not safe to release him yet
"So the first morning I went to check on him and he was gone, so we all started freaking out a little bit, and within a couple of moments I looked over and I saw that he was up on the door frame, really high up in the kitchen, and I was like 'Oh my God, there he is'!"
"Here's our little escape artist - he's going back into his little tank."
But Tony kept on escaping
"I think I'm just going to go the pet store and get a proper terrarium, because I don't think the lettuce box is working out."
"Okay, so I got Tony a new little enclosure thing, I put some more lettuce in there, a little log for him to hide, and a little dish of water that looks like a little tree stump, that's super cute."
Then, on Christmas Eve, Simon told his Twitter followers
that he had decided to keep Tony
