I got a pair of White's tree frogs yesterday and they LOVE their crickets. I would like them to eat a variety of foods, but I can't seem to get them interested in earthworms (red wigglers). I put them in a little dish, but the frogs don't seem to see them. The worms just crawl out of their dish and squirm down into the substrate, never to be seen again. Anyone have any tricks to get their frogs to eat the earthworms? Or ever just to keep from losing them in the substrate?
This is probably a bit of a dumb question. Thanks for your patience!
Sidenote: At what age do the frogs begin croaking? Mine are still young, about 1 3/4 inches long--so just wondering!
Groyne, my whites ate superworms when we first brought him home, but he hasn't since. I think the only reason he did was they weren't feeding them enough at the pet store. Be careful if you feed superworms though, they are high in chiten ( I think that is spelled right) and can be hard for a frog to pass. We had that problem, but luckly it turned out alright. I hadn't thought about trying any other kind of worm.
My Grey Tree Frog loves red worms. You might try hand feeding them it they don't try to hide.
I just dangle the worm in front of him and it disappears.
I gave mine mealies in a dish for a while then tried worms, they seem to think their the same and gobble them up, if I lose too many in the substrate I give it a good soaking and they come to the surface giving the frogs a little naturalistic hunting time.
