I used to take mine out and feed them in a separate container, but they never ate very much because they were too interested in making a break for it. So, when I redid their terriarium, I set up a feeding station-a tall dish sunk into the ground. I sprinkle calcium powder on the bottom of the dish and drop food into there. I have an occassional cricket get out, but the frogs are good at hunting it down. They eat better because they are in their own environment and now I have 7 very chubby little boys and girls!
