planning on getting a pacman frog but cant decide on a color. thinking of either getting a common one from petsmart or getting a blue samurai from japan on a site for $100-$300. the price is a bit much for me especialy as a first one since i aint a pro on these at all. i know the basics and everything like what to feed it and the temperature and all that but i dont want such a nice frog to die on me especialy one that uncommon, not that i want any frog to die at all no matter what it is. i really like the blue color but do you guys think i could garentee it surviving and do they have them healthy on Samurai Japan Reptiles -Pacman Frog -? really want that color and ill feed em the food from that site and some good nightcrawlers with calcium supplements. ill also feed it a pinky mouse every 1-2 months more along the 2 months side. ill be misting the cage and keeping the temperature good with coconut fibre as a substrate. ill do the best i can do garentee its survival and keep it happy so if theres anything else i can do please tell me and whether or not you think its worth it as a first frog! also one more thing will these grow to a good size like most pacmans cause i dont want one thats to small. got lots of time to plan things since i wont get the frog for another 2 months so i can plan things out and figure out how long the shipping from japan will take!
I say if you got the money, go for it.
Those are some nice looking pac mans! It's all up to you man, they're not too bad to take care of. My baby ornate has been awesome so far. Just make sure you got everything your gonna need, and dive in!
The Blues are not any different in care than a normal colored Pacman. We got 3 of them from Samurai and lost one within the first week. Shipping that distance can be very stressful on the frogs. I would suggest you start with one you purchase closer to home & then when you're ready to take the plunge, go for a Blue.
That way, when you get the Blue, you will have hands on experience and will feel more confident. It will also give you the chance to know if a Pacman is the right frog for you.

ya thats what ive been thinking of doing but for me its pretty much either get a blue pacman now, or never get one at all. no way i will be able to get 1 more pacman frog later so i have to get a good color for the first one. ill check at petsmart and see if they have nice colors but if they dont, ill probaly go for the samurai blue one. thanks for the advice guys!
All due respect its your money, Since you're new to this like I'm to live plants. I went and got good cheap ,and hardy plants, with tons of research on top of that I'm working with a planted screened Viv,and a planted 150 gal aquarium. I heard the blue pacman are more delicate then the green cranwelli. Its a man made product. Its made in a lab. The regular morphs have the wild gene still in them which that makes them stronger. I have seen some pics of them loosing the color on there skin turning transparent. If you think you have the know how go for it. But don't do it cause you can afford it.
kinda makes sence that when there pretty much made in a lab that they wont be strong. im just hoping for a pacman frog that wont have to much brown on it later on. going to try for a ornate pacman that has good colors but if i cant find that im going for the blue samurai. thanks for the help guys!
If you want lots of green,than go with an ornate with less red.
There nice frogs. I never had any luck with the blues.
