Default Why have I never seen anyone talk about egg eating?

I have a breeding pair of Santa Isabels. If I let a clutch of eggs stay in the tank, the male frog will see the developing tadpoles start to wiggle around within a few days. The first time I noticed something weird was when some of their clutches went from 12....to 8....to 4... within the span of one day . At first I thought papa was hanging out around them so much to guard his babies. But his intentions were much more sinister all along.

I no longer leave clutches in their tank with them after they lay.

P.S I have plenty of healthy tadpoles from this pair, anyone looking to diversify their lines of SI's?

There's been a little talk of this:


I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd.
