    Here's A Faintly Terrifying Photo Of A Toad Trying To Swallow A Bat

    Is it a toad? Is it a bat? Oh, it's both.

    The toad finally gave up and spat it out. While Olaya at first thought the bat was dead, he said it slowly recovered and was able to fly away.

    It's a rare sighting, but not the first. A toad was also seen eating a bat in Brazil in 2003.

    There's even a scientific paper detailing exactly what happened (but it's in Portuguese).
