duck versus frog - 01 duck versus frog - 02 duck versus frog - 03

Here we have a "teenage" duck (not a duckling and not an adult) who thought that it could eat a frog.  The duck caught the frog (that was the hard part), but it couldn't quite swallow it.  The duck carried the frog around in its beak as it was later chased around the pond by a larger duck.  It ducked out of sight (pun intended; yeah, that was an easy one) and I don't know if it somehow managed to eat the frog or just gave up on it.  This incident took place at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.

One this trip the vast majority of rabbit sightings were in Epcot, typically in the grassy areas in Future World West by Innoventions and between Canada and the Refreshment Port in World Showcase.  On past trips, rabbits were very common throughout the Disney resorts, especially at night.  Pop Century and the Wilderness Lodge are usually loaded with them.
