Male Intermedius eating eggs.

This is a strange one. I don't know if I would have believed it if I hadn't seen it.

Last night, I looked into the Intermedius cage, and noticed one of the frogs (a male I just added over the weekend) whose face looked really swollen. Upon further inspection, it looked like there was something stuck in his mouth - or his toungue was really swollen (like when they drown) and he couldn't shut his mouth.

So, I pull him out to take a closer look. I remove some pieces of spaghum, but can't figure out the blockage. So, using a small set of tweezers, I tried to move the object in his mouth. By this time, I had a closer look and came to the conclusion they looked like little stryofoam balls, like you will find in potting soil. So, I was really worried.

WRONG, the little bugger had 2 eggs in his mouth. I gently teased them from his mouth amazed at his little trick and added him back into the tank. Upon closer inspection, I found 2 additional eggs in the tank not 3 inches from where I had found him earlier.

Has anyone else had an issue like this?

There is a possiblity the tank holds a 2.1, because I can't find one of the frogs - but I have only seen 1 of the males for over a week.

Do you think he was eating them or transporting them to a different spot??
