Hi Somerset and Mark,
It looks like that is a bit of 'space jelly' on the right ok, on the left is the part of the female frogs innards which is commonly avoided by the predator consuming the frog.
I would love to know exactly what this tube is, it looks like intestine but why would a predator have to purposefully avoid consuming the intestine. I would hazard a guess that the tube is reproductive organ and is avoided for the same reason the ova and what becomes jelly is avoided, could this particular tube be the part of the frog which produces the jelly in which the ova become encased during spawning?
