Residents rescue chubby toad trapped in concrete hole

This is the heartwarming moment residents rescued a chubby toad that was trapped in a concrete hole in Thailand.

Jiranan Boonnit was doing laundry outside her home when she spotted the creature with its head poked out of the ground in Samut Sakhon province on December 15.

She said: ‘I have no clue how this guy was stuck in such a small hole. There were so many ants crawling over his body so I guess it must have been hours.’

The reptile was removed from the narrow hole and freed at a nearby canal.
