Of all the startling images to have come out from the Queensland floods, this has to be the most unusual — a green frog hitching a ride on the back of a brown snake.
Computer technician Armin Gerlach was visiting friends in the flood-hit town of Dalby, located in the state's south-east, last week when he spotted the unlikely pair.
"I felt amazement, I just couldn’t believe it," Mr Gerlach told ninemsn.
Mr Gelach said a friend who had been affected by many floods told him animals often helped each other out during disasters.
"It's quite common when you have animals in floods or fires or disasters, they actually get together and don't do anything," he said.
"[My friend] has seen foxes and rabbits forget their hunting instincts during natural disasters," he said.
Mr Gelach said he and his friends were inspecting flood damage on the property, where waters had risen to about 47cm.
