Watch these frog legs ‘dance’ after a little salt is sprinkled on them

This is quite a bizarre thing to see.

We didn’t know this, but apparently since the cells inside frog legs are still intact – even after the frog is dead and they’ve been separated from the body – they’ll do a little pre-dinner dance for you when salt is sprinkled on them.

From ScienceDump:

There is still a source of energy for the muscles in the form of unused ATP molecules stored in the cells. All that the muscles need is something to activate them and they can still contract and relax (until they run out of ATP or something else shuts down the biochemical machinery).
