A FROG that constantly changes colour is being worshipped as a GOD in India. Hundreds of curious followers flock to Reji Kumar’s home every day to pray and ask for miracles.

Now one of the country’s top zoologists plans to study the rainbow frog. But Reji, 35, who keeps the creature in a glass bottle after finding it while out watering plants, is afraid it might CROAK first.

He said: “My one problem is that this frog does not appear to eat. I keep trying to feed it but it doesn’t eat anything. I don’t know what else to give it.”

The frog was a dazzling WHITE colour when Reji, from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, first spotted it.

Then it changed to YELLOW and had gone GREY by the time he got it home.

Lift worker Reji added: “By night the frog was dark yellow, and then it became transparent so you could see its internal organs.

"It seemed like a miracle to me that this frog had so many different coats. So now people come to see him and pray to him.”

Professor Oommen V. Oommen from India’s Kerala University, said it was not uncommon for animals to change colour.

He explained: “Frogs do change colour to scare away predators.

“But from what I have heard, the frog at Kumar’s place changes colour so frequently it is a bit unusual. I will collect it for study.”

I’m sorry, but how stupid do you have to be to go ask some frog for a miracle?

The frog has more wisdom and intelligence than the mainstream news media’s God & Messiah.

The frog will die, because there’s only so many times you can spray-paint one before it expires.

At least the frog does not need a teleprompter.

So, just want will happen when he tries to confiscate this god for study?

You mean Obambi is living there, too, in an alternate universe???

I notice he changes color daily, depending on what audience he is addressing!

Hey, I can change color from pasty white to bright red with just an hour in the midday sun without wearing sunblock. So worship me.

I usually have to lick the frog before it starts changing color like that.

Wasn’t there some sort of rumor in the 1970s about licking multi-colored toads and getting an LSD-type high?

Clearly in play here...

Wish I could get the sound effect with the gif. The silence ruins it.

Hello, my baby,
hello my bonnie,
Hello my ragtime girl.
Send me a kiss by wire.
Baby, my heart’s on fire.
If you’ll refuse me
Honey, you’ll lose me,
Then you’ll be left alone.
Oh, baby, telephone
And tell me I’m your own….

The dummy can’t feed the frog-the frog seems to have managed quite well up to the point of capture on its own-he could just let it go.

That’s surprising, usually they only worship tasty things like cow, then starve. They must be totally hungry already, so Satan can just throw this easy one out
