Angler Found Himself Shell-Shocked With His Catch. You Wouldn’t Believe The Thing He’s Seen!
So, you might heard the phrase “I’ve got a frog in my throat”. Well, if fish could speak, this one would really say it – and there wouldn’t be anything metaphorical about it.
Your newest, freshest most uncanny dose of bizarre comes from – the depth of fish’s mouth, caught by the fisherman Angus James, who was dumbfounded and slightly creeped out to find a living, breathing frog inside of it!
We don’t know if the amphibian was simply on a survival drill or was just plain lucky to have lived through what was supposed to be a hefty supper for the fish. In any case, it was jammed in the throat of a fish caught in Northern Queensland, Australia.
Angus James, the man who was struck by this latest crazy stunt straight from the wilderness, later admitted that he was shocked, but self-collected enough for him to recall that he carries his camera with him everywhere he goes, so he managed to make a documented record of his strange catch, probably the strangest he will ever make. It was published on Reptiles magazine’s Facebook page and immediately attracted all sorts of attention.
James added: “”As I was pulling my lure from the fish to release back into the water I noticed two little eyes looking back at me from inside the fish’s mouth. After capturing this picture, 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!”
As soon as frog was done staring at James, it leaped out and over his shoulder and to freedom, away from the jaws of death. Although, probably, the fish suffered more because of frog rather than vice-versa. Especially if you take into consideration a possibility that the frog was there as an intruder, intercepting fish’s food and taking it all for itself! A particularly witty commenter on Facebook location of the photo said that the frog ought to be named Jonah – after the biblical character that was swallowed by the whale. Oh snap!
