Hello guys
I bought a pacman frog 2 days before.In the pet store he ate in front of me one cricket but since I have him in home , he has only ate 1 cricket.His terrarium dimensions are 25cmx40cmx12cm.
I use forest moss and plantation soil.I keep the humidity at 80 % .The temperature is between 18 and 20 celcius,(I think its a little bit low but I cant go to the pet store until tuesday)
I tried to move the food with a tweezers in front him for some time but he attacked the tweezers!
Now I have him in a little place 20cmx10cmx5cm with 4 gut loaded crickets but he havent eat any of them yet!
please help me!
thank you :D

Sounds like the temperature of the enclosure is the cause behind this, as they require at least 24-27'c. So up the ambient day time temperature to about 27'c and have a lower night time temperature of around about 24'c. :eek:

Well personally I think its a thing that requires attention as soon as possible. What are the ambient room temperatures?

the ambient room temperature is around 20-25 celcius , but I think the humidity in the terrarium is making the temperature to drop :/

    as long as its not freezing they should ship fine. I usually ship mine in 2 days priorities like axolotl. insulation and some cold pack. Is this morphed or still a larvae?

    I currently have a 3 year old axolotl, he hasn't been eating for the past couple of weeks and has lost a lot of weight. Hedwig usually eats bloodworms and earthworms just fine but now he won't even stud it. I've done a water change to make his nitrate lower and his water is at a good temperature

    Hey guys I was wondering if my axolotl looks fine to you he/she (still don’t know) I’d activate and eating as usual but I did notice veins in the tail area.. let me know what you guys think! Also if anyone could tell if it’s a boy or girl that would be great! (Zolo was eating a worm and pretty sure the worm pooped XD)
