Default Re: Do frogs eat slugs?

While I think frogs are sizable enough to eat a slug, my Dendrobates auratus will take adult Calliphora vomitoria without problem, I think the issue here is that slugs can produce toxic defenses to avoid predation. I know that a lot of mammals avoid them regardless of size, and I've heard of some animals becoming ill after ingesting them.
