Good things come to those that wait, especially if those waiting are ambush predators like northern leopard frogs!

Leopard frogs may look pretty adorable with their characteristic spots and buggy eyes, but don't be fooled! Those bulging eyes are a key part of the hunting strategy that makes leopard frogs such successful hunters. By having large eyes set far apart and on the tops of their heads, leopard frogs are able to see in almost all directions around them at once, even when mostly submerged in water. This way they can avoid predators (or kids out frog catching!), and keep a constant watch out for prey like insects, smaller frogs and even garter snakes. As soon as their prey wanders into striking range, the frogs will quickly pounce and gobble it down!
