Pollywog Axolotl & Clawed Frog Pellets

The majority of Axolotls & Clawed Frogs will readily accept pellets as part of their diet and even more stubborn feeders may find the highly-scented nature of these pellets tempting. Pellets have a number of advantages over other foods such as high nutrition levels, long shelf life, & reduced risk of contamination.
