Frog help? #1
Found a frog in my street last night and it was really dry, so i took it home and put it in my spare fish tank until i've got time to go release it over the lake, im just wondering is there anything i can feed it without having to digs worms up? I've got some freeze dried bloodworm that i feed my fish will it eat that?
Thanks in advance, Reece

Aww, that was kind of you to give froggy some TLC

Any type of 'bug' food I would think would go down well, though dried blood worms would need pre-soaking I would think Frozen bloodworm may be accepted more readily, do you have any in your freezer?

Love the pic When I had newts they liked bloodworm when they were in the aquatic stage, when they morphed they were more into worms, white worms, mini crickets and fruit flies

Re: Frog help? #6
Mine didn't do that well - they came as eggs on some plants I bought mail order. The plants also had flatworms so I dumped them in a jug in irritation - finally decided to bin them and then realised three baby newts had hatched from the little black blobs I'd thought were some sort of plant seed! Managed to get two of them to about 6 months old but really didn't know enough about them and dietary issues took them in the end. I'm sure froggy would like some worms though Slugs maybe? Or is that toads?

Re: Frog help? #8
Just wanted to say....love the frog photo....he's lovely.

My little boy has a couple of Aquatic Frogs and they've really 'grown on me'.

Hope he's OK....I think what Violet said though....soak the dried bloodworms...I think I remember rightly that you said that you'd got those in already....we alternate dried and frozen with JB's frogs....dried in the morning and frozen at night.

Good luck,
