"With its plumped up body and sullen face, you could be forgiven for thinking this Australian amphibian bears a striking resemblance to Jabba the Hutt. The frog, nicknamed 'The Boss' by its owners, has an uncanny similarity to the Star Wars' villain. Like the obese alien, the Australian waxy monkey tree frog has a grotesque triple chin and terrifying reptilian eyes.
Owner Keith Talbot, 47, snapped 'The Boss' at his home in Ashington, Northumberland while it was perched on a branch in a vivarium. He said: 'He was sunbathing when I took these photos, unlike other tree frogs they like basking. 'He ignored me when I took the photos, croaking and making chirping noises.'
He may be 'The Boss', but at only three inches tall, he is far smaller than the 'slimy worm-ridden piece of filth' - as Jabba is lovingly called by Han Solo"
