Frog farm nets a fortune
Frogs may turn into princes only in fairy tales, but in real life one farmer living in Vietnam has found that frogs can also easily turn into huge profits.
Once a poor farmer, Le Son became a millionaire from raising frogs after mastering the craft of raising the amphibians at a frog farm in the central province of Ha Tinh.
Son said the current price for one kilogram of frogs at the market is VND35,000 (US$2.1). To produce 1,000kg of frogs, Son said about six sq.m are required and the cost of feeding the frogs is extremely low. But diseases posed the greatest threat.
