Feeding Pipidae Frog Tadpoles

Tadpoles of the Pipidae Frog genera eat different foods and have different feeding methods:

African Dwarf Clawed Frog tadpoles

are entirely carnivorous throughout their development. This means that they have to be provided with live food.

The tadpoles of African Clawed Frogs and Suriname Toads (Pipa)

are filter feeders. This means that they gain their nourishment by filtering water and extracting suspended particles of whatever foods are suspended in it.
