A lot of times when Trevor lunges, she ends up getting her tongue stuck to the walls of her tank. When she pulls it off, it sounds kind of like velcro Does this happen with anyone else's frog? Does it hurt them? She doesn't seem to mind too much, and she'll keep going after food, but it just SOUNDS painful. It's hard to avoid, since it takes the dubias about three seconds to run to a wall and start trying to burrow, and she's never taken food from tongs...
This is normal!!
Our frogs do it all the time at feeding time. They know the tongs are coming with food and they get excited and try to eat everything that moves through the walls of their holding cups. It does no harm, but it's really cute & entertaining to me!

Haha! I love when they do that!
Glad it's not hurting her It is pretty funny to watch, especially when she uses her arms to push herself away from the tank walls.
Nah, I've only gotten bitten by the teeth.
Ouch! Chomper used to bite anything in her path, if it moved. She seems to recognize my hands now, and waits until I put the bugs down. Though she still lunges at the tongs pretty hard when I use them.
