This amphibian found itself having a Princess Leia moment when 2 snails rested on its head

He looks like he’s from a galaxy far, far away.

Captured by Indonesian photographer Tanto Yensen, 36, this remarkably laid-back amphibian found itself having a Princess Leia moment when two snails slithered up opposite sides of its head.

Resembling the hairdo of the iconic Star Wars heroine, Mr Yensen said the snails appeared to want to ‘play with the frog’ – which is actually his four-year-old pet.

Shot outdoors in Jakarta, the enchanting dumpy tree frog remained stock still as the pair of snails slithered around its head and shoulders – not even blinking an eyelid when they slid over his eyeball.

Mr Yensen regularly photographs animals, both wild and domestic, in comical-looking situations in his back garden.

Known for being generally docile, these frogs emit a screaming sound in the face of predators, and squeak when touched
