Topic: american bullfrog ate what?

I have watched my american bull frogs grow from tadpoles in my water pond. Well this evening i was relocating 19 tree frogs from my swimming pool to the water pond flowerbed. A few jumped in the pond and the next thing i know the american bullfrog had a mouth full of tree frog nothing but legs sticking out. The strangest thing i had ever seen. The american bullfrog ate a tree frog......Never would have thought i would ever see that happen.

Thanks for sharing your observation;  I may be wrong, but I've always had the impression that bull frogs don't reject many meals...
whatever fits in their face, pretty much?

You are correct. Smaller rodents, birds, frogs, snakes, Turtles, etc...
