Wow, a bullfrog that begs for food. The only pets I have that do that are my tiger salamanders (and my cat.) I like your frog names, though, glad I am not the only one who names my frogs. (I currently have a toad named "ampee-fire" because when he calls, his throat acts like an amplifier. No one in this household is in a band, nooo...)
I would only feed the bullfrog once or twice a week, because doing more could lead to overeating, which is never good. I fed my male bullfrog about 10 smaller minnows overnight, he devoured all aand would eat more, but I have to make up for his lack of knowing when to stop eating, in this unnatural environment. In the wild, they eat alot, but I saw many large bulls in a pond nearby who sat around uninterested while small leopard frogs (tasty morsels to the bulls) hopped everywhere.
I just feed my bullfrog once or twice a week, either about 10 crix or 10 small (or) 5 large minnows. He has started eating and growing again after the winter hibernation when he did not grow at all. Basically, when I sense that he is full up, I remove any uneaten fish or stop handfeeding the crix and give him a few days to digest.
