Do frogs use umbrellas? Apparently some of them do — as the photos below show. This frog and its umbrella was apparently spotted in the garden of the photographer’s neighbor.
The tiny tree frog was photographed by Penkdix Palme — a 27-year-old photographer from Indonesia — who reported that the frog stayed under the leaf umbrella for somewhere around a half hour while the hard downpour lasted.
For those that immediately jump to the conclusion that the image is staged… a couple of things to keep in mind: While most animals have no real need to avoid rain — even heavy tropical downpours — the frog in question looks rather tiny. Most small tree frogs — some species of which are incredibly tiny — do seek shelter during heavy rain. The situation shown in the photo isn’t unbelievable — it’s actually probably extremely common. Though obviously most frogs probably make their way to a more substantial shelter, such as a tree, rock, etc.
