Default My Frogs are Starving - Please help

Hi Friends,

I tried catching a few insects below the lights but I was really disappointed. After a lot of tries all I could catch was just 2 tiny insects. My frogs havent eaten since I got them and they are starving for 2 days now. I really wish I could do something.

Here in India we dont have stores who sell live crickets or any other insects / livefoods. The only option that I have is to buy live earthworms from an organic farm nearby but these earthworms are too large - more than 4". Is it possible to chop them up and feed them to the frogs ? Will they eat it ?

Also wanted to know if I can feed Red Ants to my frogs or will the ants bite / kill the frogs ?

I can also breed guppies and feed the fry to the frogs - will they eat them ?

Kindly help me as I'm really worried for these guys...
Thanks and Regards
Kush

I think they will do fine with chopped up earth worms, the Earth worm tends to wiggle even after being chopped up, so they will capture the frogs attention and hopefully the frogs will eat them.
Also check the "for sale" part of the forum, most likely you will find either a person selling food or maybe a link to a website where you can order some.
I wish you the best of luck!

What annoys me and i mean no offence by this.
you have just got an amphibian for the sake of having a pet.
You should have thought straight away about dietry needs etc, but you havent .
I am sorry to say that i have a bad feeling you are going to not care for these frogs properly and it worries me in your sheer lack of planning.
Once again i mean no offence what so ever i am just merely stating the obvious.
