The Twitter account Strange Animals, which posts colorful, weird and amazing animals, posted the purple frog photo recently, and a legion of fans of the show took quick notice. The frog, called a Nasikabatrachus bhupathi, was discovered earlier this year in India.

Some pointed out that the frog bares more than a passing resemblance to Dart, a new creature seen on “Stranger Things 2”.

Even famous fans got in on the fun, such as Hayley Williams from the band Paramore.

In “Stranger Things 2,” one of the main characters, Dustin (played by Gaten Matarazzo), discovers a “pollywog” he names “Dart,” short for “D’artagnan” from “The Three Musketeers.” While Dart spends the first few episodes as a creepy, adorable, Three Musketeers-eating pet, it turned out that Dart was actually a baby version of a type of terrifying, inter-dimensional monsters dubbed “demodogs,” which got some Twitter users worried.

Even the official “Stranger Things” Twitter account joked about it.
