This is hard for me since I feed my WTF's and FBT's with a different type of cricket (a larger type of cricket) but I'll make the conversion the best I can.

Your White's, depending on the size, might each eat anywhere from two to five or even six crickets every other day. I put emphasis on other because many people try to feed them this amount every single day. This leads to obesity in these frogs—that's not a good thing. You may also want to monitor the amount you give these frogs if there are more than one in your terrarium (and I see you have two WTF's from your signature). Some are more gluttonous than others and will steal food from the lower guy on the totem pole, so I might keep watch and tweak the amount of crickets accordingly.

For your FBT's two crickets every other day will suffice.

These numbers are only viable if you are feeding them only crickets. If so, I recommend giving the crickets a bountiful diet and powdering these bugs in calcium before given to the frogs.

do not powder EVERY feeding, this is gonna provoke calcium overdose which paralyses nerve system

WTF can eat a LOT of crickets, you can feed from 10 to 30crickets a week, sparingly if you want
FBT, smaller crickets, from 5 to 15



I've had this spring peeper for over 4 years..!

My frog is a light green tree frog,I give him/her ten to fifteen crickets a day some times every other day and he eats half and the rest the next day.I am guessing I need to also feed it some worms? I love watching this frog when he eats he is so funny,he/she turns head quickly watching the crickets scurry across hut it lives in.Real beauty in technicolor.....

SORRY EVERYONE COULDNT FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE A NEW POST, BUT HAD AN IMPORTANT QUESTION! slightly concerned, while feed my firebellies mealworms this evening. one of them darted at my hand and picked up a piece of gravel instead. (a pink-purple rock) before i could take the piece out of its mouth, he swallowed it. from what i gathered from the part sticking out, it was roughly small-medium cricket sized. not much i can do at this point is there? if someone can respond ide appreciate them being sent to kroberts009@yahoo.com thank you!
