do flatworms eat frog eggs?

Do you have a question about anatomy, life cycle, taxonomy, or anything else that isn't covered by the other frogs.org.au projects? Ask them here (or provide an answer to other people's questions).

do flatworms eat frog eggs?

A clutch of orange-thighed green tree frog eggs disappeared on the 3rd day from our pond in Kuranda,NQld. It never happened before. Could flatworms have eaten them? We have had an exlosion in their population(could that be related to the introduction of some underwater plants, which we introduced a few months ago?)
