More Than You Can Chew

A Cuban tree frog attempts to digest a light bulb. Photographed by James Snyder, April 2009.


Should any frog enthusiasts be alarmed, fear not. As Mr Snyder explains,

This is a Cuban tree frog on a tree in my backyard in southern Florida. How and why he ate this light is a mystery. It should be noted that at the time I was taking this photo, I thought this frog was dead having cooked himself from the inside. I’m happy to say I was wrong. After a few shots he adjusted his position. So after I was finished shooting him, I pulled the light out of his mouth and he was fine. Actually, I might be crazy but I don’t think he was very happy when I took his light away.

One of these.
