    They are nocturnal so feed after sunset or when you notice frog is awake. Night crawlers (without dye at Walmart's sports section) are a great food. If frog is small, can cut worms from pointy end in pieces same length as frog. Worms can also be dusted. Just rinse in dechlorinated water, pat dry with paper towel, cut if required, and dust

    Also, remember to add supplements, CA/D3 2X and vitamins 1X on different days with skip day in between, good luck .
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​

    Also they bite and it hurts. Use tweezers to feed them.

    Not sure if your frog will accept tong feeding, but you can try by "tickling" it's lower jaw with the food with tweezers. If he keeps rejecting, you can always leave the food from night to morning, but be sure not to leave it an entire day, food items can cause stress or even harm the frog.

    Every frog is different and will have different preferences for what it wants to eat and what techniques will convince it to eat. They do like routine, so if you change the way you feed them too often that might stress them out.
    Are you having any specific problems getting yours to eat?

    Also to this if your frogs not eating when you tong feed put him in a new tank or critterkeeper with some most paper towel in the bottom so he won't it the substrate then in the when you wake up in the morning put him back in his cage

    Try jigging the food item a bit on some tweezers. Sometimes they need to see the food. I've noticed if I give Gerald an earthworm and it falls into the tank too close to him, it's like as though he can't see it moving but he has a little bit of a fright when he can feel something moving near him. So now I dangle it in-front of him rather than drop it in the tank.
    Use plastic feeding tweezers if you're afraid at first, be careful though, they will either bite the food item, the tweezers or your finger... I wouldn't worry about the biting bit, majority of the time its the sticky tongue that gets stuck to you!!
