  1. Re: Black Soldier Fly Larvae survived alive from my Pixie Frog's digestive system.

    Actually let me correct myself, it seems that it's fairly common for BSF larvae to pass through frogs' digestive systems completely whole and still alive. I'm surprised, I was always under the...
  2. Re: Black Soldier Fly Larvae survived alive from my Pixie Frog's digestive system.

    BSF larvae are pretty soft so I can't imagine how they would survive the digestive tract of any animal, not to mention they would most likely suffocate from being deprived of air that long. Are you...
  3. Re: Additional remedy suggestions for impaction?

    I have an update on the situation: last week on Tuesday I bought some mineral oil and managed to syringe some into her mouth, which resulted in her passing some stool in a long, warm bath the next...
  4. Re: Additional remedy suggestions for impaction?

    Thanks for the reply. I figured warmer temperatures would help speed up her metabolism, but I think I'll need to get a larger heat pad to bump up the temperature in my tank.
  5. Additional remedy suggestions for impaction?

    Hello everyone,

    Unfortunately my frog has what I assume is a pretty bad and unusual impaction. It is on the frog's right hand side (on the left when looking at the frog head on), which is the...
  6. Nematodes/Roundworms in Bioactive Vivarium Soil

    Recently I noticed a bloom of these small roundworms in the soil of my bioactive Pacman frog vivarium, which has been setup since Thanksgiving last year. The only material used for the soil is coco...

    Re: New family member

    If he will feed outside of his tank then you can certainly do that to minimize substrate ingestion. Some frogs stressed from being handled/moved to a container and won't want to eat afterwards, so I...

    Re: Pac Man Frog

    I second Hypnofrog on the yard earthworms. As they're at the bottom of the food chain they tend to pick up and store any toxins and heavy metals in the soil, which then get passed on to whatever...

    Re: Help identifying frogs/toads

    Lucky you, I lived in Arizona for 10 years and never saw a single toad! Maybe the valley was too hot and dry for them. But looks like you've got some little spadefoot toads! You can tell by their...

    Re: Albino Ornate Pacman?

    Ornata x cranwelli hybrids are usually called Orwell's, and from what I've researched they're not commonly available due to low spawn yields. According to those who have seen them they're said to...

    Re: Albino Ornate Pacman?

    Upon searching Flickr, I found another user had photographed the same frog, owned by Dennis Sheridan. It seems that the photographers got the identification from Dennis. I'm not convinced this is an...

    Albino Ornate Pacman?

    Has anyone on here ever seen an albino ornate? Genetically I assume it's possible but I've never seen one advertised for sale online or one that could be definitively identified as an ornate in...

    Re: Best way to feed

    It can take a lot of patience and practice to get a frog to take food from tongs. Does your frog eat the waxworms or mealworms when they're just dropped on the substrate in front of him? If he's not...

    Re: Feeding gifs

    Don't worry, they're European nightcrawlers! They don't give off the smelly fluid red wigglers do. I had been feeding him red wigglers when I first got him and he ate them fine for a while, but as...

    Re: Feeding gifs

    Glad you think so! Each time I feed him he seems to grow bolder and more ravenous. He just had his first superworm tonight and I plan to try earthworms next time I feed frogsmile

    Re: Baby Medley Not Eating.

    It may be helpful to give a honey soak to make sure everything is moving through smoothly. When my frog was off food, I noticed that he still had the occasional small bowel movement, likely from...

    Re: Baby Medley Not Eating.

    The moss may be an impaction risk, I would say it might be best to remove it for now. Has she pooped at all since you got her?

    Re: ID Please

    It does appear to be English ivy or a similar species in the Hedera genus. The plant doesn't have any hairs, spines, or other protrusions that would irritate your frogs. However the sap may harm the...

    Sadly it seems I am back to square one with my frog. He has refused to eat ever since he ate one cricket 5 days ago. Now when I add crickets he doesn't react at all, although I make sure he can see...

    Re: Tiny bugs in frog tank. mites?

    Sounds like they could be springtails. Did they scatter when you picked out the mealworm? If you only find them gathered around decaying organic matter then they're not likely to be a danger to your...
