You can see the source code. Kaeroid.java

We cannot figure out what frogs are thinking of, so that we cannot predict which direction a frog will move to.
In this applet, a frog queues for another frog who is the nearest and has similar direction of movement.
A frog who can't find the target one to queue for makes itself red and bigger figure.
A frog who is in a queue occasionally deviate from it so he acquire the freedom to do what he wants.
