Anthropomorphizing captive animals doesn't lead to better care. They are not people. Frogs don't get bored by meals (that is an artifact of human society and the fact that we think we need 40 choices of soda pop to be happy -- and guess what? We're not, on the whole. Hmmm.). Frogs don't 'enjoy' things.

Captive darts thrive on a diet of supplemented fruit flies. Other good prey includes springtails, isopods, and bean beetles.
