Measure calories burned per hour for both animals at rest, then multiply the value for the frog by some number that adjusts for the larger size of the whale.

Measure oxygen consumed per minute of both animals after they have eaten and compare the values directly.

Measure oxygen consumed per hour when both animals show the same level of activity and correct for the larger mass of the whale.

Measure oxygen consumed per hour when animals are at rest and not fed and adjust each value for that animal's mass.
