Two decapitated frogs found in the same location only a year apart.The first picture is of last years specimen which had its head lying beside it and when poked would do what any Frog would do and hop off.The second photograph is exactly how I found this years specimen.I was surprised to see another headless frog but noted how this one's wound was a lot less fresh than last years.But I got a real shock when I lifted it from the water only to feel it move and then when I placed it on a rock to get a better photo it sat prone and with life in its limbs.This years specimen had one of its front legs lopped off as well.
With all the Heron activity at this site I'm putting it down to them being overly enthusiastic with their bills.Unless anyone else has any light or wisdom to shed on the matter.
