Asian Treefrogs: Rhacophoridae - Diet

frogs tadpoles eat species

Scientists know little about the diet of many species in this family. In those frogs that they have studied, the adult frogs eat ants, fruit flies, tiny spiders, and other small invertebrates (in-VER-teh-brehts), which are animals without backbones. They suspect that the other Asian treefrogs have a similar diet. Their tadpoles, however, are mostly vegetarian. They nibble at bits of algae (AL-jee) and dead plants that are stuck to and lying on underwater rocks or the water bottom. The tadpoles of two species, the Burmese bubble-nest frog and Eiffinger's Asian treefrog, also eat the eggs of other frogs.
