Why are The Food Habits of Frogs So Interesting?

Frogs have a food habit which is really interesting to hear. Let’s have some more info.

Most frogs eat small grasshoppers, insects, etc. and eat its prey alive. Large frogs will also eat small mammals, birds, fish, and reptiles. Most frogs hunt for food at night and hide during the day. Frogs don’t drink water at all, but simply absorb it through their skin. Frogs depen on their excellent eyesight to spot their prey. Once they sight it, a frog will even leap out of the water to catch its meal. The frog will usually unfurl its longe tongue that is coated with a sticky substance with lightning speed. The prey sticks to the tongue and is swallowed whole. Though frogs have teeth, they do not chew their food. Their teeth are used only to hold the prey in place, and to keep it from escaping.

    That is interesting, teeth are just for holding, weird. Glad we don’t swallow our food whole. :)
