Great advice, friendly people, and lots of frogs!
I've now physically witnessed Frank eat a waxworm covered in the mixed powders
The relief is considerable!
Hopefully this is the beginning of the recovery from short tongue. Feeding guides for the multivitamins would suggest that I dust with the mixed once a week and the calcium D3 every other time but I'll obviously have to tailor this to Frank. I don't want to overdose him but in the same vein I don't want to under supply him when he is obviously deficient. More reading
We are now on day 4/5 of Frank not eating (again!)<br>I'm not worrying (lies), as I think this must be a cyclical thing, he does it with such regularity. <br>He definitely shed and again, he's a lot larger. I know sometimes frogs go off their food when shedding but I'm so anxious about his need to get multivitamins into him- especially the vitamin A to counteract the short tongue- I really want to see him get the vitamins into him. <br>Update: *I think he may
I have a couple of situations. First I got this tree frog that has an injured leg and its opan and white with red on it and he can't climb tha tank and he is not eating. I tryed using neosporin with out that medicated part but that still does not seem to work. He won't eat and is getting really skinny. I think its red tree leg but im not sure. I got him online and he could have caught it because he was stressed he was like this when they shipped him to me. I don't know if i can save him.
I thought perhaps I could use this blog to keep note of Frank and his vitamin issues.
Firstly, I'm glad I've started to keep a track of his feeding and bathing/pooping schedule even though it felt a little weird at first. I've noticed a definite pattern emerging of his eating for two or three days, a two day break during which he relieves himself in the water then back to eating on the third day.
This has also allowed me to tailor his dusting of calcium and vitamin D3 better
Well since the IP cam/ laser cat toy I hacked together last week
I have had another brain storm.
I know that a lot of keepers would love to keep an eye on their pets
when they are away.
I have a few of these cheap IP cameras lying around some of them are broken some are ok.
Well when you actually take one apart there really not all that complicated.
You have the following inside the camera.
A digital CCD board that's actually the
