Somewhere far away in Indonesia, a frog is having a rodeo of a time riding his beetle…

These amazing photos capturing a frog enjoying his own rodeo on a beetle is courtesy of photographer Hendy Mp. The adventurous flying frog stayed atop the insect for five minutes even as it tried to fly away and it was all caught on camera near Hendy’s house in Sambas, Kalimantan Barat, in Indonesia.
Giddy up! Photographer Hendy Mp captured this daring frog hop a ride on a beetle and it even stuck its front leg in the air cowboy-style

King of the rodeo: The flying frog managed to stay atop the woodboring beetle for around five minutes before eventually crawling off 

Risky business: The photographer, who captured the off antics in Sambas, in Indonesia, said the frog stayed on even as the beetle took off 

The frog, a Reinwardt’s Flying Frog, is native to Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, and is classed as a near threatened species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Howdy partner! The 25-year-old described the moment as ‘amazing’ and added ‘the frog just saw the beetle and decided to crawl on top’ 

Let’s go for a ride: The flying frog is seen effortlessly climbing onto the woodboring beetle before the attempts to fly away 

Rest stop: The green and orange frog even takes a moment to relax on top of his new friend, which ‘was just happily running around’ 

Let me direct you: The flying frog, pictured with its front legs around the beetle’s claw-like antenna, sits comfortably as the insect moves

Grinning wide: The green and orange frog is pictured with a huge smile on its face as it enjoyed its own rodeo before eventually crawling off

“Catch ya later folks!”
