the adventures of emma & emma

The honeymoon is over, you guys.  No longer do the frogs float around, holding each other’s hands and touching snouts.  (Is “snout” a legit term in this context?)  Recently, they have gotten into the unsettling habit of fighting each other violently at feeding time.  I feed them as much as instructed as often as instructed, but still, they bite each other on the mouth and snout (as it were) and feet and crotches.  The runt is the instigator, largely because the bigger one gets to their food more quickly.  What do I do in this situation?  The mother in me wants to separate them and yell “Stop the violence!”, but they are underwater and small enough that my touch, Lennie Smalls-like,  might kill them.  Do I feed them three pellets each, or thrice a week, instead of two and twice?  What if they grow obese?  How do you treat obese frogs?

    Conditioning, my dear friend. Every time they fight, take away their food. That’s the only way they’ll learn.
