Vending machines in Japan have always been famous for their bizarre products, from beetles and lobsters to soups or even underwear that can be sold here. While most of these anomalous items are displayed through the vending machine’s window frames, they can sometimes be found even more bizarre in … coin slots.
Twitter account Potetodaze recently found something like that when making a purchase on an automated machine. “When you look into that dark slit, there are eyes looking back at you.”He wrote with a series of photos of strangers lurking in the coin slot.
The mysterious eyes behind the vending machine’s coin slot
If only a glimpse, the slot inserted no different coins compared to other machines. However, if you take a closer look deep inside, everyone will notice a pair of eyes staring at us.
If you think this is unusual then yes, no matter how cute the vending machine is with friendly, playful music or the warm lights, free gifts, they can’t. Do have an extra pair of eyes to interact with customers. So why are there those eyes in the coin slot?
Luckily, the Potetodaze guy found the answer when the amphibian began to show up, emerged from the slot. It’s a small frog species that often appears around vending machines in Japan, especially in rural areas. Usually they will lurk under the edge of the cash change, but this is the first time many people have witnessed frogs creep inside the cash slot. So Potetodaze’s post quickly went viral, reaching more than 19,000 shares and 100,000 likes.
“God, this is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!”
“The vending machines in the countryside are considered palaces for frogs.”
“But it can also be a nightmare for those who are afraid of frogs.”
“Amphibians like vending machines because their lights attract insects.”
“Frogs also use vending machines to ‘recharge’ their energy.”
Vending machines are considered a paradise for frogs when it attracts a lot of insects
Fortunately, Potetodaze was able to recognize the frog before inserting the money because the coins might injure them. If you have the opportunity to visit the countryside in Japan and use vending machines, pay attention to this, especially in the summer, when the machines are the insect “vault” for frogs. .
