A tiny frog struck up an unlikely friendship with a giant African land snail after clambering onto its shell to catch a ride. 

The bright green Wallace’s flying frog was spotted giving the snail a quick kiss before it hopped onto its back where it sat for a few minutes.

Photographer Hendy Mp, 25, captured the unusual antics in the woods near his home in Sambas, Indonesia, and sat just 30cm away from the friendly pair while they played. 

‘When I came across the cute frog in the woods it was already playing with the little snail,’ he said.

‘It was hopping about around the snail, it was almost as if he was trying to catch a ride on the back of it.

‘I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw them, it was very funny. I haven’t seen anything else like it.

‘Amazingly the snail wasn’t phased by the frog trying to get on its back. They both wanted to play together it was really cute.
