I have the frog with its enclosure in my bedroom and i heard a croak or a peep sound last night multible times. Its around 4 inch wich i think is small for a male from last sumer. Sorry for my bad english btw

    Hey there, I have just purchased a pixie myself much smaller in size. I have been doing a lot of research on sexing these frogs, from what I have read the head shape is better used for sexing these as coloration can vary. I would say I'm 90% sure that is a male pixie

    Thank you for the reply!
    I tried to feed him outside his terrarium today but he isnt really intrested in food outside of his cage, is this because of the lower temperature?
    Btw here is another picture of him

    I've read they can be more shy eating outside the tank some people along with myself use a tote they can't see through and a lid so the frog or whatever your feeding the frog can't jump out. Leave the frog for 20 mins or so and it should have had a meal.
    i have also read juivenile frogs can be more defenceive when it comes to eating time because of instinct with predators in the wild.

    A temperature drop could totally be the reason as well, say your house is 70degrees and you scoop him out of 80 degree tank could be a shocker forsure

    i feed him now in his terrarium and hes doing greath, but he doesnt like nightcrawlers anymore
    the temperature during the day is 86 fahrenheit, and 71.6 during the night.

    do you recommend me to feed him every day or every two days?

    As far as I'm concerned if they are being picky they aren't hungry enough lol don't feed him for two three days and it'll jump at anything I bet.

    Right on! I'm glad he didn't make me a liar lmao! Glad you got a confirmation. My frog also eats more some days than others as long as he isn't loosing weight or not pooping I wouldn't worry about quantity so much. Anyways cheers from Canada!
