Photo Making Rounds Shows White’s Tree Frog Devouring A Hapless Snake
October 18, 2017
Real or Photoshop? A photo posted to Reddit several years ago showing a frog eating a snake is making the rounds again in the news. The image, named "One Last Scream Into The Abyssss," shows a snake’s head, mouth agape as it meets its impending doom by the hungry frog.

The frog in question is a White’s tree frog, (Litoria caerulea) or more commonly known in Australia as an Australian green tree frog or dumpy tree frog, according to conservation biologist Jodi Rowley.
It is not known who captured the image, but the photographer happened to be at the right place at the right time to grab it.
