:No one else has come up with an answer so far, and I don't have one either about adult frogs, because they are stimulated by the movement of their prey and recognition from this. (See the claim that someone's tincs are relishing dead Petco reptile flies--a first, so perhaps it's not impossible, just improbable.) I think the chopped blood worms are meant to be for tadpole supplement, not adult frogs. Perhaps some advanced hobbyists have used them for "force-feeding" new frogs that are reluctant about eating-- I remember reading something on this awhile back. But why not stick with fruit flies, springtails, pinhead crickets, meadow plankton and the various live worms and larvae they will take and which have been discussed ad nauseum throughout this forum? When dusted with vitamins, they do perfectly well on fruit flies alone, although a variety is better, even if it's only to satisfy our own taste for variety, not necessarily the frogs'. A lot of our opinions are more subjective than objective controlled experiments, but subjective still counts, and often works better.
