A Frog-eating or Fringe-lipped bat (Trachops cirrhosus) catching a Tungara frog (Engystomops pustulosus) in Panama. One bat can eat up to 35 of these frogs in a single night, having major impact on frog courtship behavior. These bats quickly learn the calls of edible versus poisonous frogs and remember them for years. They only catch calling males. Catching Prey
