    Default Tree frog with broken legs

    Hello. I found, about 4 days ago, a brown tree frog (grass frog?!?!) in my yard and it wouldn´t move his legs. So I picked it up and took it inside to take care of him, I tried to feed him dead flies, but he won´t eat them. He still can move any of his back legs, but he moves his body and his front legs and he tries to crawl around with his back legs dragging behind him. Will his legs heal on his own? What should I do?

    Thank you.

    The flies need to be alive for the frog to be interested. You can get cricked at you local pet store to feed the frog. So its dragging both legs behind it? Sounds like a spinal chord injury which it most like will not recover from.
