    When I was much younger, I found a small tree frog on the trail around Serpent Mound in Ohio. The frog was smaller than the fingernail on my pinkie. I remember seeing a small light green dot on the trail hopping along. I was able to catch it and show my parents. The things you remember when you were a kid...

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    In poor conditions, a tadpole will leave it's pond at the same size it was when it first hatched as a tadpole. Aka .5cm, so yah, that would be easy prey for a vft.

    And aside from a specially bred plants, a vft's trap won't usually get over two inches, with most being closer to an inch.
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    I also have the video "Death Trap" and yes, it does show a VFT closing on a small frog, but later in the video it shows "the rest of the story" and the frog easily broke out of the closed trap and walked away!
    the frog was about as long as the trap, and far too strong for the trap to hold on to..the trap did close, but the frog easily broke free..

    I dont think there are any frogs small enough to *stay* stuck in a VFT..so I have to say, no, a VFT can not catch and digest a frog.

    Scotty,

    I would have to disagree. I VFT could digest a frog, just not usually hold onto it long enough to. Plus the plant probably would get a stomach ache.

    have you ever seen spring peepers they are usualy only 1\2 an inch and newly metamorphisised ones would be even smaller! so yes it is possible for a vft to cath and digest a frog.
