    Default Completely submerged in substrate

    Facts:
    Female African Bullfrog, size of fist

    What happened:
    Tonight, At first, I thought she escaped. Instead, she was completely submerged under coco fiber.

    Question:
    Is this odd behavior? Does it indicate something, good or bad,?

    From what I know they burrow to cool off/avoid overheating. is the tank too warm?

    This is completely normal for most frogs. It could be because of overheating or some form of hibernation.

    My female african bullfrog loves to completely submerge in her substrate. I have a digital thermometer gun and always check her temps when she burrows just to make sure she isn't too hot. I think she just prefers to stay hidden.
