Australian Toadlets and Water Frogs: Myobatrachidae - Diet

eat species arthropods

The Australian toadlets and water frogs eat arthropods (AR-thro-pawds), which are insects, spiders, and other invertebrates that have jointed legs. An invertebrate (in-VER-teh-breht) is an animal that does not have a backbone. Some species eat mainly one type of arthropod. The sandhill frog, for instance, eats mostly ants, even sometimes poking its head inside ant hills. In many cases, however, scientists do not know exactly which types of arthropods these species eat because they have not yet done thorough studies of the frogs.
