CROAK AND DAGGER: SNEAKY FROG ALMOST ‘KERMITS’ SUICIDE, BUT CHEATS DEATH BY BEFRIENDING CROCODILE AND HOPPING TO FREEDOM By Joshua Nevett In a precarious stand-off between predator and prey, this lucky bull frog is proof that it pays to keep your friends close and yours enemies even closer. The wide-eyed Caiman may seem blissfully unaware of its sneaky stowaway, but the reptile is actually just biding its time until its next feed. Having just tucked into a feast of frogs, the crocodile opens its razor sharp jaws to regulate its body temperature, appearing to momentarily befriend the unassuming amphibian. The frog was placed on the croc’s head as a potential meal but having just finished eating the usually ravenous reptile managed to resist the free lunch. Unaware of the crocodile’s full tummy the brave frog quickly leapt from the croc’s head and perched on the tip of its nose before making a lucky escape. Wildlife photographer Fahmi Bhs, 40, who captured this unexpected encounter in a swamp in Jakarta, Indonesia, said crocs can temporarily become friendly with its prey after a meal. He said: “The message that I try to convey is the fact that a crocodile can be quite tame after having a meal as long as no object disturbs the inner part of its mouth. “During its state of calm, I got the opportunity to approach the croc and capture this moment. “The croc did not eat the frog, but I did witness the croc pounce on a small chicken with incredible speed.” ENDS
