    I use organic top soil and sphagnum moss on top of the top soil in my tanks. I have dumpys, red eyes and grays... It is what they recomend for live vivaruims...

    Furnish your terrarium with a good substrate – an inch or two (2.5-5 cm) of additive-free top soil is the best option because top soil contains natural, helpful bacteria which can better stabilise the waste your frogs will produce in between cleanings. Alternatively you can use coconut fibre (sold as bed-a-beast, terrarium soil, and other names). Coconut fibre does not have the balance of natural bacteria that is found in top soil and tends to sour sooner.

    I would try to limit how much he ingests. With certain substrates frogs (or any animals) can develop gut impactions that occur when they swallow too much bedding and it becomes impacted in their intestinal tract. I have never heard of this happening with spaghnum, but I would actively try to not have him eat bedding. As for the other substrates, my favorite bedding for Ceratophrys is moist paper towel. It's not very attractive, but they can't eat it, and it can be changed easily. With large terrestrial frogs like this you need to change the bedding and water very very often so ammonia and other nasty things don't build up and kill your pet. That being said, spaghnum is my second choice for these frogs. Maybe try feeding in an area with no bedding? Either way, a little spaghnum will not kill him if ingested.

    I don't think a frog could eat a moose. But if it could I would worry about him digesting the antlers.

    Yes, they can, I have seen it. There is this place in the wilds of Maine where bullfrogs get big enough to eat mooses, black bears, and so on. I went there once with some friends, it was like something out of Jurassic Park. First there was "ooh", "ah", then there was running and screaming as the frogs began to eat my friends. I was lucky to escape with my life.

    Hmm I don't think so. I heard they were chorus frogs. Also what kind of paper towel is it? Is it an all natural no bleach paper towel?

    It's hard to tell until they are mature. Young males will sometimes call even before maturity. Mature male Ceratophrys tend to have darker throats and they don't grow as large as females.
