He ought to look like a geek, as he spends as much time as he can tromping around Brazilian jungles looking for, well, frogs.  And he finds them.  Particularly, he found the only three-fingered frog I have ever heard of (full disclosure: now an amateur scientist, I was never a biologist). Brachycephalus tridactylus is his discovery and it’s a charming representative of its genus

and arguably better looking than he is.  I realize that’s an apples and oranges kind of thing, but look at the color of this frog and you see real beauty.

And three fingers.
