Default Earthworms for African Clawed Frogs

Hi guys

Does anyone know if lob worms (lumbricus) are safe to feed African Clawed Frogs? I have found a reptile site that sells them for a decent price + p&p, and it would be much easier buying them and gut loading them rather than digging them up, un gut loading and then re gut loading them!

Lobs are fine for acf , they are not fussy feeders and will eat most types of worm without a problem.

In fact, I've had no trouble offering any kind of worm to ACFs. I've had mine take whole nightcrawlers, compost red worms, bloodworms, blackworms.

So having bought the giant lob worms, I discovered having to chop the poor things into bits was too much for me. I am a veterinary nurse, and as much as they are 'just worms', I found the whole process too upsetting. I managed to chop one worm up, the rest will be released into my garden! I will be sticking to red wrigglers which can be fed whole in the future!

Thanks for your help guys!
