Has anyone witnessed the frogs they keep do this? My frogs will occassionally just lick the ground. Are they obtaining minerals from this? Could it be them just being curious of something?

Thanks!

They are probably eating microfauna. Mites and baby springtails.
I thought the same at first. However, I do not seed my vivs often at all(once in 6 months), and they generally lick the ground after a good misting. I have scoured the floor of the viv after watching them do this, and I see nothing... I know microfauna is called MICRO for a reason, but they are doing this primarily after a mist only. I thought perhaps it was a lack in mineral needs that was driving this behaviour. If the common opinion is that it IS in fact microfauna, I would feel much better. I would hate to think the frogs were deficient after I try very hard to keep supps that are fresh on hand and use them...

Thanks for the input, Adven2er!
