The Pacman Frog

Are crickets or worms more fattening?

Victor Cummings

ConclusionIn my experiment, my frog gained more weight on the diet of crickets than of the worms. During the week of crickets he gained 4.9g, during his week of worms he gained only 3.4g.

I think that crickets will be more fattening because they contain more carbohydrates than worms.
