I saw that No. 4 before. Yup, it is pretty amazing what a squadron of only 30 hornets can do to a hive of 30,000 European honeybees. YIKES! :o

But here's one way that the bees' Japanese cousins have learned how to counter the hornets' threat:

No. 2 in that montage, the one with the newt and the bullfrog, reminds of the emergence of the gopher after the final Caddyshack explosion scene.

Fast forward to about 2:15 on the video.

What's truly incredible to me is the bullfrog's diet.

Kermit: "If it's smaller than me and it moves, I'm eatin' it."

"Come here, Junior. GULP! Down ya go."

I just saw on video the last couple of days that the animals found most frequently inside the bellies of bullfrogs in Arizona are--get this--other bullfrogs.

Im legit scared after seeing those hornets
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

Nah (to the former)! A bullfrog will eat just about anything it can fit in its mouth, even another bullfrog. Cannibalism is very frequent among their kind.
