ROYAL OAK, Michigan — The Detroit Zoo is seeking human candidates to become the next leader of its amphibian population.

The zoo in Royal Oak is looking for a 7- to 12-year-old Michigan resident to serve a two-year term as mayor of Amphibiville, its two-acre wetland village and home to the National Amphibian Conservation Center.

Candidates must write an essay of 100 or fewer words on why they should be mayor and submit it to the zoo by Friday. The winner will be announced in November.

The job comes with a plush frog and a one-year family membership to the zoo.

The outgoing mayor is 13-year-old Gabriel P.J. Graydon of Southfield.
