Hi All
            A group from Germany is seeking some information about Xenopus food and what the community feeds their frogs. They are asking for input via a questionnaire. I am pasting their email below my signature.

Dear EXRC- Team,

I´m writing to you because I know that you/your institute work with xenopus. Perhaps you do also know a larger number of researchers who work with Xenopus frogs? In the context of lab animal nutrition, we became interested in Xenopus frogs and the diets they are fed in lab animal facilities. Together with colleagues at the Chair for Animal Nutrition and Dietetics LMU/Munich,
we are trying to get an overview of the current feeding practice. It would be great if you could help us by distributing (and also answer) the following link to our questionnaire:


We will treat the responses anonymously and not connect institutions with feeding practices in our interpretation of results.

Thank you very much in advance and best regards,
