A little bit of ‘The Frog Prince‘ with this one. You know that frogs eat insects, but the way that they swallow their prey is rather unusual. A frog’s tongue is attached differently than human tongue (at the front of the mouth instead of the back). To compensate for this, the frog retracts its eyes into its soft palette to push the food down into their throat.
