How Often Do Frogs Eat?

How often a frog eats depends on his size and species. Generally, smaller frogs require daily feeding, medium-sized frogs must feed up to four times a week, and larger frogs need feeding a few times a week.

Eating schedules vary depending on the frog, therefore, paying attention to the frog’s eating habits is the best way to learn his feeding schedule. Most frogs do not need to eat every day. Some even aestivate during winter months – eating little or nothing during that time. A frog also has the ability to lower his metabolism and live off body fat for an extended period.
