What Do African Dwarf Frogs Eat
African dwarf frogs are small, colorful amphibians that can be kept as pets. The diet of African dwarf frogs depends on their age, size and species. However, in general, they eat small aquatic invertebrates (such as insects) as well as fresh lettuce leaves and fruit/vegetable matter.
African dwarf frogs eat small aquatic invertebrates (such as insects), which they catch with their large toe pads.
African dwarf frogs are omnivores, which means they eat both plants and animals. In the wild, their main diet consists of small invertebrates such as insects, fish and worms. In captivity, you can use commercially prepared frozen diets with insect larvae and brine shrimp to supplement their diet. They also enjoy leafy greens like spinach or lettuce.
Frogs have large toe pads that they use to catch prey in their water environment; this makes it easy for them to eat small invertebrates like insects and worms without having to hunt them down in more dangerous locations outside of the tank.
Although African dwarf frogs are small, they eat the same foods as other frogs.

They also have a voracious appetite for live food—especially crickets and worms—as well as frozen foods like bloodworms (bloodworms are type of insect larvae).
It is possible to feed your African dwarf frog dry food pellets but this can be dangerous because the frogs may not get enough moisture from them. Also some foods in the pellets are not good for the frogs so it’s best to avoid these kinds of foods altogether if you can help it.
African dwarf frogs can be kept in captivity as pets.
African dwarf frogs are a good choice for beginners, as they are relatively easy to care for and require very little maintenance. They can be kept in a small tank that has a lid on it, so that the frogs cannot escape. The tank should be filled with water of a depth of at least two inches; an aquarium with a capacity of 10 gallons (38 liters) per adult frog is sufficient.
African dwarf frogs do not need much in terms of feeding or care; once or twice per week you will need to perform regular water changes by siphoning out some of the dirty water from your amphibian’s habitat (you may use this dirty water to fertilize houseplants). You should also feed your pet African dwarf frog once or twice per week with live foods such as earthworms, crickets and pinky mice (small lab mice).
The African dwarf frog is a small aquatic frog that can be kept as a pet. It is also known as the dwarf clawed frog or African clawed frog, and it has been popular in the pet trade since the 1960s. In this article we have discussed what these frogs eat in captivity and how they are fed.
