Yep, frogs can get huge! The other problems is stress. They need to be able to get away from their food source. My fruit flies have no manners and always climb all over my frogs :) Maybe yours are nicer.

With fruitflies you shouldn't have a problem. Dart frogs won't eat themselves to death in one feeding if thats what your asking, but I have heard of many frogs that were overweight. This can be fatal. Trust me though, you would know if your frog is overweight.

and no my fruit flys do not have any manners either...

I asked the same question and really backed off my feeding and my frogs seem a lot more active and my Azureus started to breed after the weight came off.

I think this pick will answer your question:

Is it possible for a frog to eat too much?
if there are too many FF's cruising around the habitat will the frogs eat themselves to death?

i'm glad to hear they managed to get back to a healthy weight,
i've cut back from dumping in about 20 or so flies a day to just around five or six...
i hope the other two guys pull through...
