Boa eating bullfrog?

The petstore i buy my feeders from are out of f/t mice and rats. I was talking to the reptile guy and he said i can buy a small bullfrog to feed him untill they get the rats back in stock. So can my BCI eat a bullfrog, is it healthy? Don't they have some kind of toxins? Thanks in Advance.

Don't feed your snake a bullfrog. I doubt very much you could even get your snake to take one, and just having it in its cage could introduce all sorts of pathogens in to your snakes environment. Even if your snake did take one, it could pose all sorts of health risks. I would recommend finding an alternate place to purchase your feeders (rats).

LOL. Silly petstores! Thats ridiculous! I have never heard of that, but yes, as linds said, all sort of problems could arise from it.

I have ordered from Rodent Pro, Bayou Rodents, The Mouse Factory, and Classic Dumm's. They are all good but Rodent Pro has the best prices from what I have seen. Although Classic Dumm's sizes tend to be slighlty larger.
