White's Tree Frog

White's tree frog or dumpy tree frog (Litoria caerulea) is a species of tree frog native to Australia and New Guinea, with introduced populations in the United States. Juveniles may eat larger food items, such as big crickets and earthworms, but it is best to avoid anything too big. Older frogs can eat pinky mice, night crawlers, and other frogs.

A critical aspect of a White's treefrog's diet is vitamin and mineral supplementation. Feed adult White's tree frogs as many crickets as they will eat in 10 to 15 minutes, two to three times a week. Feed more frequently if the frogs are maintained at temperatures in the 80s. Young frogs should be fed every one to two days, again with as many crickets as they will eat in 10 to 15 minutes. 

A small round disc called the tympanum covers the ears of both male and female frogs. On males of most frog species, the circumference of this small disc is larger than the eye of the frog. On females of most frog species, the disc's circumference is equal to the size of the frog's eye. 

White's Tree Frogs like to eat earth worms, super worms, wax worms and BSFL.

Some of my customers that have used black soldier fly larva (BSFL) also feed the flies with some success.
The BSFL has the best Calcium to Phosphorous ratio of all Live Feeder Insects known to entomologists so they are the best food you can feed your frog.  

BSFL will live 6-8 weeks when kept dormant (10 C - 50 F) in a cool place (fridge door top shelf is OK) and need NO feeding or cleaning so they are virtually Maintenance-Free grubs.
