Prime jargon

Found this jaw-dropping sentence in an otherwise readable Wikipedia article on the American bullfrog (Rana catesbiana). It’s about how bullfrogs catch prey:

Adaptation to target image displacement due to light refraction at the water-air interface consists of the bullfrog’s application of tongue surface comparatively posterior to the perceived location of the prey target.

I’m too awestruck to attempt a translation into mere English. Or to put it another way: “Subject’s response subsequent to analysis of the indicated selection of the specified hypertext document (q.v.) has induced a latency of indefinite duration in potential compensatory generation by subject of superseding character strings through a process of user-agent facilitated authentication, composition, and remote storage.”
