Liu Hai & the Three Legged Toad

You may wonder why this tea pet toad has 3 legs. The popularity of frogs/toads as a tea pet originates from a legend of Liu Hai and a three legged toad during the 10th century. The story goes that he became friends with this special frog, who loves not only water, but also gold. When it jumped into a well, Liu Hai could only pull him up by throwing a cord of gold coins inside the well. Therefore, our toad tea pet has a gold coin in their mouth and cord of gold on its back.
