My frog ate my other frog

I once owned two green tree frogs, which at the time I had no idea they could eat each other, and should be separated. After having them both in the same den for a few years, one day the smaller frog disappeared. There was no way he could have gotten out, so we concluded that the bigger frog ate the smaller one. This was extremely disappointing.

The frogs would occasionally sing at night, sometimes they would sound like a duck or whining puppy--strange sounds you wouldn't expect from frogs, and they sounds would appear to be coming from another direction, and not at all where the frogs were actually stationed.

Overall, they were great pets to take care of and educate me when I was young (10-12 years old). The most important part for youth when taking care of exotic animals is to really dig into research about them (which I could have done more of, and maybe I would have been able to prevent the other frog from being eaten by his pal).
