Feeding Tips for FrogsFrogs are predators - they hunt 'living' prey. As a result, most people have great success feeding their frogs live insects such as crickets, cockroaches, silkworms, moths and flies.
If you would like to feed a thawed pinkie or fuzzie mouse as a diet variation, this is also acceptable. You will have to trick the frog into thinking the mouse is alive though. The easiest way to do this is to hand feed your frog insects on the end of tweezers for a week or two, and then offer a thawed pinkie in tweezers. Usually this is taken with gusto.
A reluctant feeder is often a result of stress, usually associated with too low a temperature in the frog’s home. Some frog’s can be stimulated to feed by gently rubbing food on the front of the frog’s nose, below the nostrils.
DoLittle Farm doesn’t recommend you attempt force feeding, but if it is necessary, we suggest you contact us before attempting to do so.
