"progeny from a UE import" so the dealer told me. Good point; I'll chase and find out for sure.

It's frustrating watching them "eat". All they seem to go for are the springtails but they let FFs walk on by.

How do frogs hunt? By sight? If so, what is their range of vision and how good is their eyesight?

No idea scientifically speaking, but my Ranitomeya uakarii have seen flies from about 8-10" away and leapt down from their perch to gather flies

Same, I've never seen mine eat fruitflies and yet the majority of the flies are not there the next day. Either they're escaping or they're getting eaten. I wish for the latter.

It's a puzzle.

I'm told they are almost a year old and lead to believe it might just be transport stress; that they'll eventually go back to eating Mels when they're comfortable.

I'll continue feeding them FFs of course but I do worry about vitamin/mineral ingestion. I suppose I can't force them to eat.
