TALK about having a frog in your throat! A North Queensland angler was left stunned after he found a live green tree frog sitting inside the throat of a jungle perch he caught on the weekend.
Angus James began unhooking the fish to throw back in the water when he saw the frog, who leapt over his head to freedom.
“I was pulling the lure out of its mouth and there was this little frog staring up at me,’’ he said.
“I was shocked. I thought it might have been grass at first, then it blinked.
“I always carry a camera so I took the pic and then he jumped out.’’
Angus, a professional field angler at Tackle Tactics, has become an overnight internet sensation.
