Frogs hitch ride on water buffalo - 'a first'

1 post in this topic

Water buffaloes in Turkey have been spotted carrying some unusual hitchhikers—tiny frogs.

In autumn, farmers along the Black Sea coast release their domesticated Anatolian water buffalo to wallow in the marshes, where a menagerie of marsh frogs hops onboard, a new study says

Some birds forage on top of large mammals, including cattle, rhinos, and zebras. But this is the first time scientists have described such a relationship between amphibians and a large mammal.
