This is the extraordinary moment when a hungry frog opens its jaws to eat a mouse for lunch, but then changes its mind and befriends the rodent. The astonishing scene was captured by a photographer watching a white-sided tree frog sitting on a tree branch next to a tiny white-sided mouse.
The little flank mouse squares with the frog in Jakarta, Indonesia. The mouse may have been lucky enough to avoid becoming a frog’s dinner, at least for today.
The little mouse closes his eyes, preparing for what is to come, until the frog changes his mind and decides not to eat the rodent.
Photographer Tanto Yensen, who captured the extraordinary moment in Jakarta, Indonesia, said it was extremely strange that the frog didn’t eat the mouse. He said: “The frog opened the seal to try to eat it, but then changed its mind and made friends with the mouse.” The images show that anyone can be a friend.

“This is the first time I’ve seen a frog deciding not to eat a mouse, it’s a very special moment. “It shows how anyone can be a friend, even sometimes the person we’re supposed to stop hating.”
