    Default How do I get my White’s tree frogs to eat roaches

    My White’s tree frogs have only eaten crickets as far as I know, but I want them to start eating dubia roaches. How do I get them to eat them?

    Put a smaller roach in the enclosure and I think it will go for it. These tree frogs are voracious

    Roaches like to burrow into the substrate. You may want to try an escape proof feeding dish. Or, try presenting it on tongs or tweezers.

    Crush the head and lay it on its back. The legs will still wiggle, it won’t burrow and it won’t play dead.

    You can hand feed it. I do that with my frogs. You just put it in front of it's face.
