Thread: Alternate foods for African giant Bullfrog?

  1. #1

    Default Alternate foods for African giant Bullfrog?

    In my current living situation, i am not allowed to have any feeder insects colonies(such as crickets, dubias etc.). is it possible to sustain an African giant bullfrog on a diet of earthworms, with an occasional platy and bimonthly pinky. Also, i checked out the food article and noticed raw shrimp and squid as food options. are these viable for the frog? I am trying to come up with alternate and cheap food sources, since it would get to expensive to by crickets or roaches several times a week. Any thoughts or comments on this, all advice appreciated.

    Earth worms are a good staple for GAF because they have a good ratio of calcium and phosphorus( most people dust their crickets and other bugs or worms like super worms because they do not have the needed calcium and phosphorus) although a varied diet is the best diet for your frog I would say it's better to feed earthworms as a staple rather than crickets. Hope this helps
