World’s smallest man-made frogs
In 2007, Hu Hui Shen, 56, a computer science professor from Nanchang, China artificially bred the world’s smallest frogs. The frogs are about 0.5cm long and can leap up to a height of 10cm. The professor started collecting frogs since he was a boy and dedicated all his free time to breeding them. He publishes his findings under a pseudonym in science journals to keep his interest a secret from his university.
