What do frogs eat? Frogs will eat flies, crickets, spiders, beetles, grasshoppers, all sorts of insects and if there happens to be a smaller frog to hand, it will probably eat that too. They will also eat small invertebrates, ants and forest mites.
Larger frogs will eat mice and small snakes.
If you intend keeping frogs as pets they will need a healthy diet - one that is nutritious and well-balanced. It is also very important that the right size of food and amount of food is given to your frog at the right time.
When a frog is in the water, it is highly sensitive to movement around it, and this movement stimulates feeding, and so it is better that the prey offered to the frog (and other amphibians) is live.
Frogs are unable to produce vitamin A by themselves, and so they need this from their food. To make sure that a pet frog has enough vitamin A in its diet, it is probably a good idea to feed it a live insect that has itself been feeding for over 24 hours on 'gut-loaded' substance - eg fruit, vegetables and cereals. This means that the insect is loaded with good, nutritious substance and therefore when the frog eats the insect, it will benefit from all the goodness that was within the insect.
Live insects and dead insects can be bought from your local petshop
Depending on the size of the species will indicate how often it should be fed. A small species will require probably daily feeding, a medium-sized species will require feeding maybe three or four times a week and a large species less than that.
