    So to day I'm pretty sure I over fed my pacman frog. I fed him a small little feeder fish, and a nightcrawler. When he was done he has what i think is a prolapse coming out of him. I'm not sure if it is but I didn't notice this almost pink lump on what i think is his butt. I have a few questions:

    Is this a prolapse ?

    What should I do if it is?

    And am I able to feed nightcrawlers to my little guy?


    This is my first frog so I'm not too expirenced as you might notice. I hope he's alright though :3

    Is this a prolapse ?
    Likely, but a zoomed in picture would give someone with experience a better look. It could just be a little bit of feces that didn't come out all the way - I've never owned these frogs. Did this occur right after feeding? If it occurred right after feeding it very well may just be a harmless piece of substrate or some feces. If it occurred some time after feeding, the time it would take for the frog to digest and defecate, it could be a prolapse.

    What should I do if it is?
    There are home remedies you can try but I personally would see a vet.

    And am I able to feed nightcrawlers to my little guy?

    Certainly, nightcrawlers (not red-wriggler/compost worms) are a good food for most amphibians.

    I'll try and get a better picture. And it happened during/right after feeding
