What do Frogs Eat?

There are many species of frogs, found all over the world except in Antarctica. What do frogs eat? Frogs are carnivorous, which means they eat other animals. Small frogs eat insects, worms and snails. Some species eat small fish. Larger frog species eat small reptiles and mammals, like mice and lizards. Frogs do not chew, so all of their prey is swallowed whole.

Certain frog species have a long sticky tongue that they use to catch flying insects. It is amazing how quickly they do this. The entire process of the tongue unrolling, catching the fly and then rolling back into the mouth takes less than a second. Frogs that do not have tongues use their fingers to put food into their mouths
