Are magnolia seeds harmful to frogs? I put a few cones in a tank and before the frogs go in, I wanted to check to see if they are ok. I do like the way they look in the tank, and it has become quite the feeder station for microfauna. I can tap a couple of thousand out of each cone easily.

I read that in very large doses it can be harmful to dogs, but those are cases of dogs eating dozens of cones. Could the microfauna pass possible toxins into the frogs?

Unlikely to cause a problem with the frogs.

Thanks Ed. If that is the case then I have to recommend using Magnolia seed cones for spring cultures. They could prove as good feeder stations for froglets as well.

I've even seen box turtles eating the red seeds that drop to the ground.
