This photo taken on June 22, 2017 shows a model of frogs playing cards at the Frog Museum in Estavayer-le-Lac, western Switzerland. The museum shows a collection of 150-year-old scenes of everyday life in the 19th century, involving 108 frogs stuffed with sand, and portrayed at school, at the barbers, as soldiers in the army, as well as playing a game of cards. The unique collection is attributed to François Perrier between the years 1848 and 1860. (Photo: AFP)
