Frog's legs.

I was out and about today and came across a supplier with whole rabbit and frog's legs.

Any idea on feeding raw frog's legs? Would that be a good source of bone and give their teeth a good clean? They were quite inexpensive and were nice and meaty. The same supplier also had raw alligator. It was a bit more expensive than the frog but dooable on occasion. Anyone feed frog or alligator?

We do frog legs. They were not interested at first... then they devoured them! Lucky they are cheap there. $9 for 6 here. Ouch!

Alligator, however... I dont feed carnivores. Ever.

This is partly why I don't feed raw (yet). Not only can I not afford to feed the cats, all the stuff they get is stuff I love too... so I'd have to buy for them AND me LOL

(dunno if I cooked the frog legs right, the one time I had them, but they were okay...sort of tasted like a mix between chicken and scallops)

I noticed frogs legs at the asian grocery store last time I was there, and I was sorely tempted to pick some up.

Could anyone who's actually bought these tell me about how big the bones in frogs legs are? Are they similar in size to the two bones in a chicken wingette? I'd be curious to give them a try as long as I could feed the bones in them too

I would say they're sort of in between wing and leg of chicken, for size. At least the ones I got, but I got relatively big ones. I suppose it depends on what size of frog legs you got...I'm sure there's smaller ones. But I was greedy and got the biggest one the store had! LOL

At my Asian market, they have live frogs so yes, they do have frog legs, but they are attached to a whole live frog...can't go there...no! Eeeewww!!!

Aw c'mon, it's not that bad! I made Escargot from start to finish! ...er, okay I didn't get the snails out of the garden. My friend brought them in a tupperware...but I did help kill them and prepare them from that point. And it was NUMMY!

Ahem, anyhoo.
The frog legs I got were frozen and ready to be cooked. They were the back legs, chopped off at the waist area.
However, I guess if you weren't afraid of kitties getting salmonella, you could feed them the whole frog? (have the market people kill it, if you don't want to do it?)

Yeah, I'd definitely give the cats whole frog - if only I could find it! I'd hope someone else would be willing to kill it for me (I just don't know if I could do it myself) but at least the meat would be very fresh!

Couldn't you put the frog in a tupperware container and put it in the freezer for a few hours or overnight?

That's how the pet store did it for the mice I unsuccessfully tried my cats on.

I saw skinned, headed whole frog in the Asian market yesterday. They were $9 for 2 whole frogs. I think it is still too expensive for me.

On the other note, quails price has gone up. I used to get 6 quails fro $6.99, then $7.99, and I saw it for $9.99 yesterday.
