    There's a funny storey behind this box. Whilst in Hong Kong a friend of mine told me he kept his pet frog in this box. Now I thought that was a bit crazy and a touch cruel. But he explained that he transported his frog to frog racing events in this box, the frog would run (hop) his race then was returned, in his box, to its pond. Never did believe it but its a good storey. Thanks for looking. Neil
