    Dusted crickets should be the main staple for your frogs diet. The pinkie should only be a very very rare treat. I'm not sure why he would say to feed him pinkies. Maybe he's never really treated frogs before. There's a lot of misinformation out there when it comes to frogs. Your frog looks fat enough and pinkies would be like giving a kid candy.

    I agree with Cheri-for a species of frogs that can get obese very easily, I am rather surprised your vet would suggest such a diet. Stick with crickets, roaches and earthworms and your frog will love the variety!!

    I agree with the two smart women who posted before me. Suggesting an all-pinkie diet is weird. I never feed mine pinkies, and I know they could go their whole lives without one and be completely satisfied. Variety is good, so every once in a while, throw in a mealworm, waxworm, earthworm.

    I think an important question to ask would be- Was there any particular reason the vet told you to give your frog this diet? Or Did he suggest that this is the normal diet for a White's tree frog?

    Just to rule out some possibilities.
