07/27/06 - A Mouse Riding A Frog

This picture looks like an illustration from some fantasy novel. We found it in the 14 July 2006 issue of Science Magazine, the AAAS journal, with a simple caption. The frog is an Asian toad (no species given); the location is in the floodwaters of Lucknow, which has been experiencing one serious monsoon, but little else is revealed. The next article in the section was on Rewiring the Brain, but we don't think that the mouse rewired the frog toad's brain, though that is the sort of thing we would expect to find in a fantasy novel.
