    My New Pacman!

    Today at the Havre de Grace All Maryland Reptile Expo, I went just to look, and I ended up coming home with a 3 week old red albino pacman frog. I'll post pics ASAP!

    I didn't even see albinos! Were they on the table with the guy who had all the toads? He usually has CB babies. Remember, NO uvb for these guys at all.

    Its the albino in them. Their lack of pigment. With UVB exposure they will go blind.

    0.0... oh ****, oh well, I love my little guy anyway ^_^. I'll just have to make sure I dust the crickets extra well. Oh and the light I'm using only consists of 3% UVB, but would it be alright if I switched him to a normal heat lamp?

    He'd do fine with just a regular old house hold light bulb. Heat lamp is fine as long as there is some sort of day/night cycle.

    Actually, I've been doing some research and reading, and from the information I've gathered, my 2.0 florescent bulb which only provides 3% UVB (that's what it said), should do more good than harm to my frog. I should just leave it on six hours a day instead of 12 and for the other 12 I could just use a regular light i.e. light from the room it's in.

    Be sure it specifies ALBINO horned frog and not a regular horned frog. I'm 99.9% sure an albino should have NO uvb.

    The 2.0 would be fine on a regular pacman. In fact, I have one on my guy.

    There are 3 kinds of UV. There is UVA, UVB, AND UVC.

    UVA used to be considered harmless, but are now proven to be the cause of wrinkles and sunspots. UVB are "burning" rays. UVB are about 100 times stronger than the other UV rays. UVC is harmless to us because they are completely blocked out by our ozone layer.

    Albinos lack melanin, which protects the skin from DNA damage caused by direct absorbtion of the suns UV rays. This is the reason that very light skinned people have higher rates of skin cancers due to sun exposure. Also true for redheads as well.
