I'm stuck... I need to be toad away: Rat rescued from the middle of a pond after hitching a lift on a frog

 

Unusual animal alliance photographed in a pond in Lucknow, India

The rat was clinging on to debris but made it to the shore thanks to the help of the frog

 

These extraordinary pictures show an unusual animal alliance as a frog carries a rat across a pond, saving the rodent from a watery grave.
The rat had been clinging to debris as it struggled to stay afloat in the pond in Lucknow, in northern India, and welcomed the assistance of a more aquatic creature.
The friendship is reminiscent of The Wind in the Willows, the beloved children's book in which Ratty helps Mr Toad reclaim his ancestral home.

Photographer Azam Husain managed to capture the unique moment as he was hanging out next to the water.
'I had parked my scooter on the shore near the pond,' he said. 'I noticed something floating and soon realised it was the rat holding onto some piece of debris.

'It was as if the two creatures were talking in their own way. The next moment, the rat managed to climb onto the back of the frog.
'All this happened very fast. I quickly reached for my bag and took out my camera.'

Triumph: The pair eventually made it to the shore of the pond, saving the rat's life

The frog proceeded to dive into the water, carrying his passenger on the back, and made it to the shore.
Mr Husain said: 'I managed to take a few pictures. I was fascinated with the way the frog swam and the rat held on tight. They were like friends.
'Sadly, I could not catch the moment when the frog reached the shore and rat just sped away.
'I looked around for a bit but both the little creatures had just gone back to their world.'

That is just amazing June! So glad Mr. Husain had his camera with him, you'll never see anything like this again. Thanks!

Well this fellow was lucky. In some parts of India, they pay for people to kill them. In some areas of India, they are worshiped. And in the Phillipines I saw on Nat. Geo. Channel where they gave up and just let the rats get fattened up on their rice fields then eat the rats. Yuck !! Thanks for the post Junee. Fruddy Hugs from me and Dottie. xoxo

Frog Legs: A British Innovation

New Discovery in England Sheds Light on Who Ate Frogs First

For better or worse, frogs are often associated with the French.
But now, sacre bleu! A team of archaeologists has recently discovered remains of one such amphibian—which had obviously been cooked in some manner—at an ancient site in Wiltshire, England, not far from Stonehenge.
The bone fragments were dated to nearly 10,000 years ago. "That's well before the first documentation of the French eating frog," says dig leader David Jacques of the University of Buckingham. "The earliest source for the French eating frogs legs is in The Annals of the Catholic Church from the 12th century."
The history of the frog as human food is murky at best. But Jacques says it's not surprising that hunter-gatherers would have eaten small animals like frogs and toads. "It may well be that they were a source of useful protein then and a convenient 'fast food' to cook."
So how did such humble fare end up on the most refined menus? Cookbook recipes indicate that frog legs were a part of haute cuisine as far back as the 18th century in France, says French food writer Benedict Beauge. But how they got there is hard to decipher, in part because few cookbooks were written in centuries past about food for the masses.
What is better understood is England's reputation for not liking frog. In the Oxford Companion to Food, author Alan Davidson (a Brit) writes that frog is "perceived by the English as a staple of the French diet." He adds: "Why the idea of eating frog should be repellent to the English in particular is mildly puzzling. It may have something to do with the ugly (to human beings) appearance of the creatures, or the thought that they emerge all slimy from evil-smelling ponds."
This notion is echoed in Larousse Gastronomique, which says frog legs have "usually filled the British with disgust."
Still, some culinary records do offer proof of frog being enjoyed in Britain.
For example, in his 17th-century cookbook The Accomplisht Cook, Englishman Robert May included a recipe for a pie made with live frogs that would "cause much delight" and spur the ladies to "skip and shreek."
And Larousse Gastronomique notes that when 19th-century chef Georges Auguste Escoffier worked at the Carlton Hotel in London, he convinced the Prince of Wales to allow frog legs at his table by calling them cuisses de nymphes aurore—legs of the dawn nymphs.
Not surprisingly, archaeologist Jacques says that his discovery isn't really about who ate frog legs first anyway. "Rather," he says, "it might be worth considering that all the people settled in Britain in the Mesolithic had their origins in France and surrounding areas."
Jacques also noted that Britain was still joined to mainland Europe until around 5500 B.C., when it separated from the continent. "Perhaps we should see this as an opportunity for entente cordiale—we were all French then!"

According to Larousse Gastronomique, the leg is the only part of a frog that's edible.

A common toad adopting a defensive stance

 The European common toad (Bufo bufo) adopts a characteristic stance when attacked, inflating its body and standing with its hindquarters raised and its head lowered.The bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) crouches down with eyes closed and head tipped forward when threatened. This places the parotoid glands in the most effective position, the other glands on its back begin to ooze noxious secretions and the most vulnerable parts of its body are protected.Another tactic used by some frogs is to "scream", the sudden loud noise tending to startle the predator. The gray tree frog (Hyla versicolor) makes an explosive sound that sometimes repels the shrew Blarina brevicauda. Although toads are avoided by many predators, the common garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis) regularly feeds on them. The strategy employed by juvenile American toads (Bufo americanus) on being approached by a snake is to crouch down and remain immobile. This is usually successful, with the snake passing by and the toad remaining undetected. If it is encountered by the snake's head, however, the toad hops away before crouching defensively.

June, thanks for a fascinating post. Enjoyed the pictures and the explanations. Too bad humanity can't be as generous as the frog was to the rat. Anyone who is different, humanity seems to feel the need to hurt or dislike.

  • March 17,2014: The Rio Frio Salamander, Ambystoma leorae, long ago disappeared from the heavily polluted stream where it was first found. The stream-adapted species, once included in the no longer recognized genus Rhyacosiredon, has been rediscovered (the last report of a surviving population is 1983). A new study reports that the critically endangered species persists in a single population on Volcan Tlaloc, located adjacent to what may be the largest and densely urbanized area on earth. The salamanders, found in two small streams, show low genetic diversity but high average heterozygosity, and three genetic subpopulations were recognized in the restricted geographic range. While it is good news that the species persists, its habitat is very restricted and it remains at high risk of extinction. (DW)

Your name on the wall of SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana's first office

Forty-three generous donors have contributed $1,879 towards our goal of $2,680 for our frog saving efforts in GhanaPlease help us reach and surpass our goal by donating today at www.savethefrogs.com/ghana-donate. Your tax-deductible donation will enable SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana to open an actual office and no longer have to work in loud, hot internet cafes. This will be the very first international SAVE THE FROGS! office and will allow SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana to coordinate our African conservation efforts in a quiet, productive setting in Ghana's second largest city (Kumasi). All donors to this campaign will have their name listed on both www.savethefrogs.com/ghana and the wall of SAVE THE FROGS! Ghana's new office. This campaign closes Monday night as I will be wiring the money to Ghana the next day. 

Your donation will also help pay our Ghanaian staff for the three months this summer that they have been without salaries due to a lack of funds. Living in West Africa is hard, and even harder when you haven't been paid in months. Labor Day weekend is a fitting time to acknowledge the contributions of thousands of environmentalists around the world who regularly go without pay to do the work that needs to get done regardless of whether there is money available to pay them. I would have sent a grant to our friends in Ghana months ago if I could have, but this summer I also went ten weeks without pay because funds were low. Please help ensure that those who work full-time protecting the planet do not have to find other types of work to make ends meet -- the success of our movement depends on it. Thank you for donating!

From birds, to bats, to bugs, we saw many fascinating animals. Frogs of course were the target and we saw 15 species! Our group visited the Tropical Education Center; the Mayan ruins Xunantunich and Lubantaan; the Blue Creek Rainforest; the Toucan Ridge Ecology and Education Society; the beautiful Caribbean beaches of South Water Caye; and the Smithsonian Institute's field station at Carrie Bowe Caye".

No, Joy, thanks for the education. Neat; hate to admit I didn't know much about frogs until I became a member of this group. Learned a lot in an easy way. Thanks to all you for giving me an education.

Hello Joy I love that Siberian Long Haired Frog, amazing. The other frog pictures are great. Thanks. I too knew very little about frogs before I joined the group. I used to have frogs in the pond in my garden, my cat Pushka caught one and bit off a leg the year after it was still hopping about.
