Frog Prince(ss) of Popularity
Living permanently in water, Palaeobatrachus was the kind of frog that people often think of when someone suggest that they imagine a frog going about its daily routine; this or a similar idea are common things in kindergartens worldwide, I promise. This, in coordination with its revival as a cartoon character on a popular children's series and numerous entries in scholarly papers as well as short texts on frogs (such as Tertiary Frogs from Central Europe). Scholarly articles and cartoons alike appear to be enough to make this fossil amphibian popular enough for it to continue to be well known and widely distributed in image, text, and even video online.
