Eating Habits

Frogs will eat almost anything, but only if it’s still alive. Most frogs eat insects, snails, or tadpoles. Large frogs will also eat small mammals, birds, fish, and other reptiles. Most frogs have a good ability to spot movement. Once a frog recognizes a moving object as food, it tries to catch it. Some frogs can flick their tongues out in a fraction of a second to stick it onto food. Other frogs use their jaws to trap their prey.

In the water, a frog may simply open its mouth and gulp to eat. Like most other amphibians, frogs have teeth. However, they only use them to grip food, and not to chew. If a frog catches something it doesn't like, it spits it out. But if the frog likes its catch, it swallows it whole.
