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.
Photographer Tanto Yensen, 36, from Jakarta, captured the images on his Canon EOS 60D when visiting Tangerang in Indonesia.
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.
Caimans will eat frogs, as well as snails, freshwater crayfish, spiders and small lizards.
