Southern Leopard Frog (eating unknown prey)

The following Southern Leopard Frog (Lithobates sphenocephalus) was spotted during a photowalk at Huntley Meadows Park on 21 April 2014. This individual is shown eating some type of unknown prey, probably either a salamander or large worm.

I have seen and heard many frogs being eaten alive at Huntley Meadows Park, usually by snakes. Natural law says “Eat or be eaten,” so I suppose it was just a matter of time before I saw the roles reversed.
