Albino clawed fogs with red eared slider

I had to move my two albino clawed frogs to my 40 gallon breeder with my male red eared slider. I had to move them because they started eating my fish in my other tank and I could not keep on having to replace fish. The frogs seem to be fine right now with the turtle there just hiding because it's a new tank but just in case the turtle were to bite a leg or an arm off do albino clawed frogs regenerate body parts? The turtle already lives with a Raphael striped catfish and a whip tale catfish and does not bother them.

Sounds like a massacre to me. Frogs have no defence against a turtle and won't be able to out swim it plus they are part of a turtles natural diet

Yah, I wish I had read this earlier. I got home after going out for a bit and the turtle had ripped apart one of them and when he saw me he had such a guilty look on his face. Luckily the other one was still alive so I took out the turtle and transferred the frog to my 20 gallon long tank. The tank only has 3 big apple snails and an algae eater in it so I presume nothing is going to hurt it. I hate to say it but the frog kind of deserved it. He ate 5 of my platys. I guess I have to remember my turtle is still an animal and he is going to have hunting instincts. No idea why he does not mess with the catfish I have in there.
