What animals that eat fireflies?
This is an interesting question as it varies depending on the species of firefly. Some fireflys are actually eaten by different species of fireflys which trick them with calls from their own species. These are actually signals with their lights, sort of a visual Morse code for fireflys. The victim flies to the area expecting a date with one of their own only to become its' dinner. Of course nightflying birds and frogs will also enjoy a meal of firefly given the chance, as will other insects and spiders.
