Showing an image of the gigantic creature taken with a cell phone camera, a Chinese man claims that the photo was taken a fortnight ago at a mountainous area in Gemencheh, Malaysia. The frog was huge in size and tipped the scales at about 20kg, the normal weight of a seven or eight year-old child.
According to him, the enormous animal was captured by an Orang Asli indigenous tribesman by the riverside. His friend was startled upon seeing the creature because previously, he had never seen a frog that size in his entire life.
The man added, his friend offered to buy the frog for 500 Malaysian Ringgit (£100) but the Orang Asli demanded RM1,000 (£200) instead. As the friend did not have enough money with him at the time, he went home to get more money.
“When my friend returned to the Orang Asli’s house with the money, he discovered that the giant frog had been slaughtered and eaten. It was also learnt that the Orang Asli fell ill after consuming the frog and until today, he is still bed-ridden and unable to move around,” he said. He added, the Orang Asli did not allow any photo taking but his friend took a photo of the frog in secret.
