    Default Feeding Earthworms?

    Are earthworms from bait shops safe to feed to clawed frogs once in a while? There any risks associated with this? Sounds like they're really good to feed but I'm worried something from a bait shop would not be pet friendly and I don't know of any other source outside of ordering over the internet I suppose.. anyone have luck with vendors online?

    Earthworms from the bait shop are just fine. ACFs love them. Bait shop worms are farm raised and free of harmful chemicals.

    Awesome, thank you. My ACFs are still quite small but once adults I will probably move them to a diet of reptomin + earthworms.
