Any advice for my new pet frog?
July 13, 2008 8:34am CST
I have been wanting a pet frog for years, and yesterday I finally took the plunge! I got a red-eye tree frog at a Reptile Expo! It looks like I successfully attached a photo of him, if anyone is interested, he's a beauty! Well, as I've been looking for a frog I've been meeting a lot of people who are really into reptiles. I've met guys who feed their reptiles chicken and baby food instead of rats and so on, and their animals thrive on it! But in all my travels, I haven't met any frog experts! What I am hoping is that there is a food alternative to crickets and mealworms? I am prepared to feed him this (obviously I knew that's what he needs to eat), but I'm wondering now if there is some other way? I know its lame, but it makes me REALLY sad to throw crickets into his tank, I hate killing bugs if they are just minding their own business. If anyone has any advice, let me know! Thanks!

Wow. Do you eat animals that were minding their own business? If so, then I cannot even comprehend your dilemma. I hope you do not plan to feed your frog anything other than what it's body needs.. which is probably other animals...
