"It felt truly amazing to catch this moment on camera, it was so great to see," Yensen told Media Drum World. "I had to wait a long time to see the frogs climb on to the crocodile's back. The key was to stay still and remain patient."
Yensen waited and watched as each of the five frogs climbed onto the crocodile.

"I love being able to portray animal behavior in my pictures," Yensen shared.

Saltwater crocodiles are the largest living species of crocodile on earth, however, this particular croc is on the small side. Even so, the frogs were risking their lives when getting so close to the crocodile. Baby saltwater crocodiles eat insects, small fish and even amphibians, according to National Geographic.
