Feeding Your Tree Frogs

Caring for tree frogs is essential for keeping them happy and healthy. One critical component to caring for tree frogs is feeding them properly. Knowing how often to feed tree frogs and what types of food is important to creating a balanced diet for them.

How Often Should I Feed Tree Frogs?

The frequency with which they need to be fed depends on the age of the frogs. Young frogs need to eat more often than adults. Frogs between 0-6 months of age need to be fed daily, while frogs 6 months and older can be fed every other day.

What Foods Should Be Fed?

The main component of a frog’s diet should be high-quality live food. Offer a variety of foods to ensure a well-rounded diet. Foods commonly fed to tree frogs include:

  • Crickets
  • Earthworms
  • Mealworms
  • Waxworms
  • Fruit Flies

Depending on the species of tree frog, other foods such as moths, shrimp, and beetles can also be fed. Be sure to offer a high-quality vitamin and mineral supplement such as calcium and vitamin D3 for optimal health.

Feeding Guidelines

When feeding, offer an amount that the frog can consume within 5-10 minutes. Do not leave uneaten food in the terrarium because it can quickly begin to spoil or cause health issues. Unwanted food should be removed so that it can be served fresh. Always feed a tree frog on a dish or dish mat to contain the food and allow it to consume it in peace.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your tree frog has an adequate diet. Remember to base the frequency of feeding and what types of food to offer on their age and species so that they live long and healthy lives.
