An English student is all the rage on TikTok thanks to an original passion, his frog farming.
The one who adopted the pseudonym Thinfrog has rallied some 2 million Internet users thanks to his videos in which he claims to want to build an “army of frogs”.
He boasts that he already owns 1.4 million and his goal is to breed 10 million amphibians in a large pond.
A worrying project
Thinfrog's passion is frowned upon by several biologists, who fear his "army of frogs" could become environmentally dangerous, the Demotivator reported.
Scientists say such a large number of frogs could lead to the spread of disease in other animals and humans.
If they are too numerous, the frogs could harm biodiversity in a way, in particular by disrupting the food chain.
Biologists also fear that the dissemination of Thinfrog's videos will encourage other Internet users to imitate him, but with other animal species.
