Below is a link to a photo of a toad trying to eat a bat. It's a hoot.
It's a happy ending for the bat.

I saw that article. I thought the bat flew into the toads mouth? It sounded accidental. Oops! I knew what it was the moment I saw the picture. Before I'd read the article. Except I didn't notice the tail sticking out. Which looks like the toads tongue! HA!

RE: Nature-Bat and Toad Story

It's an amazing picture! Both creatures probably were surprised! Bats are said to be supreme navigators, but not always. Possibly because a toad does not give out any body temperature, so it's not sensed by the bat

Lol, lilo, I agree: " Both creatures probably were surprised! "
Rob, I also got a kick out the bat tail coming out of the toad's mouth. Lol, it's a great photo.

RE: Nature-Bat and Toad Story

That is a surprising picture and amazing that at this moment somebody could take a picture.
Cane toads, out of their natural habitat, are a menace. Okinawa and Australia have big problem with those critters.

I'm always surprised what the GP poster know about "stuff".
Like the no temp toads and Cane Toads. Who knew? Not me.
