The Unusual: Toad Attempts to Swallow an Entire Bat

cane-toad-batIn Peru, a northwestern park ranger saw a bizarre sight of a bat being swallowed whole by a cane toad. Yufani Olaya, the ranger, took a photo this crazy scene. Olaya shared the photo with biologist Phil Torres. Torres noted that these types of toads eat a variety of species. However, it’s very rare to see them eat a bat. Although toads are know to wait outside of caves, fringe-lipped bats, have also been known to eat toads. Fortunately for the bat, he was able to escape from the toad’s mouth after the toad gave up from swallowing.

Story reported by Fox News. Photo credit goes to Yufani Olaya.
