These brave frogs showed no fear when they hopped onto a caiman’s back so they could do the conga.
Photographer Tanto Yensen, 36, from Jakarta, captured the images when visiting Tangerang in Indonesia. Hilarious pictures show the moment the five tree frogs clambered up the reptile’s leg and squeezed together on its back – with the first amphibian balancing just inches from its jaws.
The small tree frogs, which vary in colour from bright green to brown, can be seen clinging onto each other as they hitch the free ride on the caiman’s back.
The caiman looked a little bemused, but it did not seem to mind its new friends.
“Even when the little frog jumped onto its head, the crocodile didn’t seem to mind.”
One of the larger tree frogs allowed a smaller bright green frog to clamber onto its back, so it could also climb on the caiman. The final frog could be seen helping one of its friends, by pushing up its back legs so it could hop on the caiman’s back.
He added: “I felt really lucky to witness something so rare.”
Saltwater crocodiles, which can live for up to 70 years, are the largest of all living reptiles and have been known to prey on almost any animal that enters its territory – including humans.
Saltwater crocodiles can grow up to 17ft long and weigh 1,000kg and they are the largest of all living reptiles.
