Lucky frog

Now that’s one lucky frog. An Australian fisherman and photographer called Angus James got more than he bargained for while fishing for jungle perch in Queensland earlier this year. When he opened the fish’s mouth he noticed a little amphibian staring back at him. In his own words:

“As I was pulling my lure from the fish to release it back into the water I noticed two little eyes looking back at me from inside the fish’s mouth.”

Angus acted quickly, grabbed his camera and snapped this shot before amazingly the frog leapt out of the fish’s mouth and over his shoulder!

“The little green tree frog leaped straight past my head onto the nearest tree. It was one of the coolest things I have seen in my life! This is one lucky frog!”

Angus submitted his photo to Reptiles magazine, who posted it onto Facebook. Since then it has been picked up by various publishers, including IFL Science and Metro.
