Feeding & Bugs
Feeding should happen in the evening or early night, since the frog should be awake and active by then.
The best and most recommended food is live crickets, which are available
at most large pet stores.
You should try and 'gut feed' the crickets by providing some fresh fruit, or preferably some pellet cricket food from the pet store. Remember that the frog always eats the last meal the cricket did. So adding some orange as food would give him Vitamin C in his crickets for example :)
Make sure to dust every few feedings of crickets with calcium/vitamin
powder without phosphorus
White's will eat and eat and eat and can very easily get obese. Don't
underfeed younger frogs, but cut down if your frog is getting a little
to fat. The best way to tell is to look at the tympanic ridges (the "arches"
above its eardrums). If the ridges are invisible, the frog is underweight;
if they roll downward to cover the eardrums, it is probably overweight.
In extreme cases, the tympanic ridges can grow to obscure the eyes; this
occurs in conditions of severe obesity and should be viewed as an alarm.
