We have a big frog pond but the frogs never get real big does anyone know if you can feed them something or get a bigger kind of frog . Where do the frog legs come from in resturants ?

I've been looking for that for years.

As a open door frog-leg eater, my family will now only let me bring "chips" to the reunion gatherings. I guess too many "surprise feasts" of frog-legs, Moses Lake Muskrat, Beaver-tail, Cougar, Mountain Sheep, Mountain Goat, fresh water Butter Clams, Miners Lettuse and various mushrooms did not appeal to their "Gourmet" appetite.

Now they think I eat out of the gut pile, 'cause everytime they clean a deer, elk, bear, turkey ect.. I'm chasing the gut pile for eatables. Heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, brains, toung.

I even showed them a cookbook from our Polish Greatx3grandmother, who delighted in having such nurishing foodstuff to offer Her family.

The frogs used for frog legs are bullfrogs, and mostly come in large crates, from Vietnam and other Asian countries.

Big frogs seem pretty rare in the northern states,maybe it's the spieces or maybe just the shorter summers.Mostly all leopard frogs here in N WI(2-3in).See a lotta big toads some yrs but not many large frogs.

I'm told greeners are good to eat.(sound like a banjo string) I think it would take about a dozen to make a good meal.

Bob I have a couple times started to raise frogs and crawfish got steared off tract and let the progect fall. But will always have that intrest in the back of mine. I would very much like also to here any info. on this subject. There was an article in the Small Farm Journal a few months ago. Right now I understand most of the frog legs are imported from overseas. Coaltrain
