As you are perhaps aware, frogs will introduce parasites to the candoia so would obviously recommend waiting them out for another month forcing plenty of exercise and perhaps change their entire arrangements etc prior to resorting to frogs or even administering probiotics via a tube before trying a frog. If you need a frog to scent rat pups then you can perhaps freeze the frog and rub the slime/juices all over a rat pup and that works often when you box the snake in a tight shoe box with the food so its close by and feels secure eating or cannot move away from an easy meal. There are several dealers in the ads section that offer frogs and a gold tree frog (from asia) may be a good choice as they grow large and would last a long time in the freeze as a scent item.
