Frog Swallows Christmas Light

Hard to believe that this little Cuban frog was that hungry. 

Or maybe he was overcome with the holiday spirit?

Here's what the photographer says:

"This is a Cuban tree frog on a tree in my backyard in southern Florida. How and why he ate this light is a mystery. It should be noted that at the time I was taking this photo, I thought this frog was dead having cooked himself from the inside. I’m happy to say I was wrong. After a few shots he adjusted his position. So after I was finished ... I pulled the light out of his mouth and he was fine. 

Actually, I might be crazy but I don’t think he was very happy when I took his light away."

So I was curious...what does a Cuban Tree frog look like unlit from the inside?

Oh, he's green!  

So if he swallows a light, he's red and green...the colors of Christmas!

Smart frog.
