Which animal uses its eyes to swallow its food?
Frogs use their eyeballs to swallow. Frogs eat their prey whole and their eyeballs actually sink down into their mouth and push the food down into their throat.
How does a frog eye work?
Eyes positioned atop the head give frogs a field of vision of almost 180 degrees. This peripheral vision helps them spot predators and prey. Humans and other mammals focus images by changing the shape of the lens. Like a camera lens, frog eyes focus by moving the lens back and forth.

Some of the larger frogs will even eat pinky mice. You can purchase live prey at your local pet store.
Do Frogs push food down with eyes?
A frog cannot keep its eyes open when eating, because it uses them to help swallow its prey. When it blinks its eyes when swallowing a large mouthful of food, this causes the eyes to sink into its skull slightly. This puts pressure on the top of the frog’s mouth, which helps push the food into the its throat.
Why do Frogs close their eyes when eating?
Each time a frog swallows, his eyes close. The eyes depress down into the sockets to help move the food down his throat. He can swallow food without the assistance of his eyeballs, but being able to push the food significantly reduces the amount of swallowing he’ll need to eat his meal.
