Plecos eat frogs?

Bought an Inspector Pleco yesterday, and I come home today and one of the two Dwarf Frogs that I had is missing. . . The two frogs were doing just fine with my other fish. The crazy thing about it though is the Pleco isn't even all that big yet.

I have a friend whose Bristle Nose Pleco killed a couple of his African Dwarf Frogs but, it didn't eat them. One of my frogs disappeared and I suspect it got out of the tank somehow. I'd check the floor. Unfortunately, they only live about 20 minutes out of water. Hope he turns up and was just hiding.

Some pleco are predatory; it is a diverse family. I was talking to a guy this past weekend and he was saying his pleco attacked and killed several of his large angel fish.

May have ran it over? A startled pleco can take off very quickly.

Of course the frog may just be hiding? Mine could disappear for days at a time. Although may want to check the filter if it's possible the frog could get inside.. or the floor as suggested already
