    How are you going to come onto a forum for people who like/love frogs and post a video that shows a frog being used as food? Either it was not well thought out, or you are insensitive to the others on this forum. In either case, it's inappropriate.

    frogs are also eaten by other frogs in the wild. and there are other people on reptile forums that feed there animals corn snakes, ball pythons, leos, anoles and frogs. there is nothing wrong with this. he wasnt being cruel any way

    he's just trying to get a rise out of people i feed frogs as well (hognose snakes are toad eaters) but i dont post those pictures or videos i have no problem with the feeding except they are wild and could come from a contaminated water source thats my only concern.

    Other frogs are often offered to the larger cannibalistic frogs like Pyxies and Pacman Frogs especially WC C. Cornuta. Now I myself don't really condone it and do not offer frogs as food. If it were necessary I would do what would need to be done, but there are far better and more nutritious foods than other frogs trust me.

    Risks of feeding WC frogs as feeders and even pet shop feeder frogs are as follows; Parasites such as worms of many types such as Pinworms, Hookworms, Tapeworms.

    Also diseases number one being Chytrid which Bullfrogs are highly resistant to due to them basking in the hot Sun, BUT still carry the fungus which in turn will be passed to your frog. Chytrid is most active in growth between 59 to 73 and symptoms do not show right away so be very cautious with what you feed your frog. Especially from the wild and be sensitive to members who may find such a video offensive.

    A contaminated water source would be just like injecting poison into the frog, but there is no for sure way to know unless the area the frog was caught from was tested which is highly unlikely.

    Chytrid treatment is long and stressful process so that risk is nog worth every time a WC frog is Fed to a beloved pet.

    In fact I was a little bit not honest with my comment at the beginning of this thread, as in France, we eat frog legs...Which is so good.
