Like people, I would assume that there is a range of eating habits vs weight gain in frogs. I've noticed this in other herps -- some need to be limited as to how much I offer them to eat, and some stay slim on a very generous diet.
I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd.
