    I have a baby packman frog (not sure the exact age but he's still got a little stub from where he lost his tail from being a tadpole) in a five gallon tank and the little guy won't eat. I've had him since about october and he doesn't eat very much but he doesn't look skinny. In fact, he looks quite plump. I decided to give it a little time but it's been about 8 or 9 days since the last time he's eaten and I've become worried. The substrate is eco earth, ambient temperature ranges between 76-80 (room temperature changes daily because the boiler is in the room right next to it). I've tried feeding him with feeding tongs, dropping a few baby crickets in, nothings seemed to work. Any ideas?

    How big is he? Pics would also help. To my knowledge alot of reptiles/amphibians don't eat as much during colder months. I feed my baby/juvi pacman every other day. I would try to feed some different foods, maybe he will like it. I use night crawlers as a staple, you could try feeding those? Best of luck though! Definitely post pics though.

    I'll get a pic up asap. As for other foods I've tried crickets, waxworms, mealworms and mealworm beetles. He hasn't seemed to even take interest in anything. Last night I put him in a kritter keeper and dropped in a few tiny crickets and he ate one so at least he's eaten something.

    Thats good. Do you keep shoving food in their face when you tong feed? Thats normally what I do when mine isn't eating
