Frog swallowing firefly turns to time bomb counting down its life

Poor frog!

We all know that frogs are experts in catching insects since bugs are their food, but do you know that not all types of them can be eaten?

Recently, a video captured a frog turned to a "time bomb counting down its life after eating a firefly.

The viral video shows a frog becomes a "fluorescent" one after swallowing a firefly. Its whole body flashed like a time bomb twinkling all the time.

Although the flickering frog will make people think that the bug is still alive, the firefly should have died since the luciferase in the bug's body would still function when it is being digested.

Fireflies are toxic to frogs, so the body's flash is indeed counting down for it. The frog would probably die soon at that time.
