Photographer Captures World’s Tiniest Rodeo: Frog Riding A Beetle

Hendy Mp, a talented wildlife photographer based in Indonesia, has captured what is probably one of the weirdest spectacles we’ve ever seen – a tree frog going for a wild rodeo ride on the back of a giant horned wood-boring beetle. The tree frog is a Reinwardt’s Flying Frog, a threatened species that can glide down from trees with the skin between its fingers and toes.

The wild and adorable scene was captured not far from Mp’s home in Sambas, Indonesia. Mp is a fan of macro photography, and uses it to capture beautiful larger-than life photos of the many different beautiful insects, reptiles and amphibians native to Indonesia.

If you love having a close-up look at the tiny world of frigs, lizards and insects, then you’ll definitely love these photos by Vyacheslav Mishchenko and Miki Asai as well.

The frog is definitely being forced into those positions and is definitely distressed. Frogs don't open their mouths like that unless they're under severe stress, and the hand position is completely unnatural and was likely forced that way.

Makes you wonder if they can communicate with each other.

No it doesn't. It makes you wonder how long this poor frog has been staged in pictures that is so exhausted that it sits still on an animal it wouldn't get close to in any normal situation.
