Training To Eat










Bullfrogs require both dry and wet areas. The water must be free of chemicals, i.e. no chlorine. Bullfrogs can both dig in soft mud and climb fences. This must be considered when planning their enclosure.

Unless frogs are trained to eat an inert food shortly after metamorphosis, they must either be fed live food or force fed. The primary diet for the large frogs is crawfish and so this is an excellent live food. However they will normally eat anything alive if it is smaller than they are. When force feeding, cat food has been used effectively.

Frogs have lived in captivity for long periods of time. Bill Steed of Croaker College in Emeryville, California has taught bullfrogs to perform diving feats, push-ups, and riding electric tricycles. His frogs have preformed at carnivals throughout the United States
