Put out this frog’s favorite treat.  Watch that frog get happy feet.

These frogs tap their toes when they see insects.  That tapping may cause insects to move more.   Slurp!   The frogs lick them up.

Pray: Thank God He gives each creature ways to find food to survive.

Some animals dance to find a mate. Scientists believe poison dart frogs dance to make their dinner move. These frogs tap the middle toes of their hind feet. Sometimes they tap up to 500 times per minute. They do this dance mostly when they see insects. Scientists offered poison dart frogs fruit flies. The frogs tapped their toes more when they saw moving flies. The toe dancing likely startles insects. The tiny critters move even more. That makes them easier to spot and eat.

“He gives to the beasts their food.” (Psalm 147:9)
