Can they get stung inside?

    Frogs do indeed had some bizarre eating habits. When I was on holiday in Cavalaire-sur-Mer earlier this month I saw them eating horses and snails.

    Found this......

    The following answer has been selected and edited by New Scientist staff

    I was once idly observing a wasp crawling round the edge of a water lily leaf in my pond when it paused to drink. There was a sudden flurry of activity when a frog leapt from its hiding place and swallowed the wasp.

    The frog did not appear to suffer any ill effects, so I captured another wasp, tossed the hapless creature into the pond and waited. The frog was slow on the uptake, but there was another disturbance in the water and this time a goldfish snapped up the wasp. The fish, too, seemed undisturbed.

    My curiosity now thoroughly aroused, I wondered whether the fish could be induced to consume further wasps. For the next hour or so I continued to hunt down luckless wasps and throw them into the pond. Some got away, some were eaten by the fish, and a few were swallowed by the frogs.

    "Can they get stung inside?" Not sure if Frogs have nerves internally or not? But the frog will be fine. he's more than likely less hungry now?

    After millions of years of evolution I'm sure that frogs know what they can and can't eat.

    I bet the frog came out of it better than the wasp.

    He will most likely be okay, since the wasp probably will/did die in the process.
