Frog Rides Fish, Changes How We View Hitchhiking (PHOTOS)

This extraordinary scene took place in the Bournemouth, England, pond of 70-year-old Andree Siwadi, who eventually lifted the frog off the distressed fish.

"I have never seen anything like it before and I have lived in the countryside all my life, I have no idea why it was doing it," she told Bournemouth News.
