LOL! I didn't know 'vent' was a term for butthole used outside of Confederacy of Dunces.

Well... that's... okay that's interesting actually. Frogs are one of God's Perfect Killing Machines, so kudos to that beetle.

Furthermore, his laboratory experiments suggest that the beetle can promote frog excretion to facilitate its escape

The next study needs to determine if frogs eat them when they get constipated.  In conjunction with a study on whether frogs can get constipated...

Used to own African Clawed Frogs. They can. If you can get them to eat cooked peas, it'll unclog them as well as fish.
