Poison Dart Frogs
The diet of a Poison Dart Frog and the diet of a Bullfrog are both alike and different. A Poison Dart Frog uses its excellent vision and long sticky tongue to capture its prey. A Bullfrog also uses its tongue, but then uses its front legs to stuff food in its mouth. Both Poison Dart Frogs and Bullfrogs eat small bugs such as ants, spiders, and beetles. However, Bullfrogs also eat crustaceans, for example crayfish. As you can see, there are similarities and differences between the diet of a Poison Dart Frog and the diet of a Bullfrog.
Did you know Poison Dart Frogs go through an in interesting life cycle? First, a male frog and female frog mate. The female lays eggs after they are done mating. When a tadpole is first born, its gills are not developed. It takes four weeks for the gills to become covered with a clear skin and develop. Tadpoles begin to grow front and lack legs. Eventually, they become a little frog. This looks like a big frog with a short tail. The frog eventually begins to lose its tail when it develops into an adult frog. As you can see, a frog develops through a life cycle.
