    Yes, they make a whole range of strange sounding guttural calls. It's those choppy gear grinding noises that mine do all night, they croak in the evening. No problem, they are normal.

    Ok, I was a bit surprised they would even croak at 6 months old. I thought they took about a year to mature, that was just a guess. One of them is now making a whistling sound sometimes.....maybe they are practicing until they get the croak right?

    They are very vocal and start making noises when only a few months old. Of course they sound like their croaker is broken

    I've noticed that males of many species start practicing their mating calls early . Certainly, I've had Pacific Chorus frogs, Woodhouse's toads, American toads, and even horned frogs start calling very early. Pacific chorus frogs are very vocal, though - I had one that really loved the vacuum cleaner and the Hockey Night in Canada announcers! Either one would set him off...

    I feed them crickets, is there anything else I should be feeding them?...

    Crickets are the staple diet. I do throw a bunch of fruit flies in now and then as a treat.
