Frogs enjoyed eating the flies that landed on the dead fish

Did you know that frogs swallow their prey whole? and that they cannot take chunks out of large food items? When they found large dead carp in their territory they used them as rafts to enjoy the sun, while they enjoyed eating the flies that landed on the dead fish.
River frogs are one species of the many vertebrates and invertebrates used by SPNL's experts to assess the recent mass deaths of carp fish in the Litany River basin. In fact, frogs are used worldwide by the scientific community as excellent bioindicators that can help identify problems like climate change, water and air pollution, etc.
