NEW YORK, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- A YouTube clip taken in South Africa of a tiny, fat desert rain frog with a squeaky voice has been viewed nearly 1.4 million times in less than a week.

Posted Feb. 13 by Dean Boshoff, the clip is titled "World's Cutest Frog."

"I recorded a short clip of the defensive cry of the desert rain frog found in the sandy dunes along Port Nolloth in the Northern Cape province," Boshoff wrote.

He also encouraged people to "keep on sharing your videos of how your animals react to hearing this frog's mighty war cry."

Indeed. A UPI reporter's two beagles began howling when they heard audio of the frog's high-pitched song.
