Are African dwarf frogs blind?

No, African dwarf frogs are not blind. However, they have extremely poor eyesight, especially at a close range. They can see better at 3 inches (7cm) or further away.

Due to their poor eyesight, it can be hard to feed African dwarf frogs. These frogs are passive eaters and their eyesight makes it even harder for them to find food to eat.

In order to ensure your African dwarf frogs are getting enough food, keep these tips in mind:

  • Feed them during the day, as it’s harder for them to see their food at night
  • Use tongs to feed them
  • Get the food as close as possible to their faces
  • Move and swing the food back and forth to get their attention
