    Default WTF not eating HELP!

    I've had my WTF for about two weeks now and he's only eaten a mealworm, he looks fine right now but I just don't want him to starve and die. Please help.

    Can you please describe
    1. The approximate age and size of the frog
    2. Where or who it was purchased from
    3. How the enclosure is set up? (In detail)
    4. What the temperatures are (daytime and nighttime)
    5. The lighting you are using ( and is there a day/night cycle)
    6. The type of prey you have been offering (besides mealworms)
    7. Approximate humidity and type of water used
    8. Anything else that is relevant such as pictures

    It is easier to offer input and suggestions with as much information as possible.

Size:  6.88 MB i do not know the age, but I got him from Pet Supplies and they said they've had him for about a year. Daytime, temp is around 70 and humidity is 70-80. Nighttime, temp is around 60 and humidity is 60-70. I mist the tank with bottled spring water and I use the same for his bowl. When I try to feed him, its gut loaded dusted crickets but I'm assuming all they fed him were mealworms. Also the tank is bigger than the picture if you were wondering.

    I’d get those temperatures up closer to the high seventies or even 80 during the day and 70 or higher at night. Low temps for this species means a slower metabolism and may explain the disinterest in feeding. Try elevating your temps and see what happens. I’d also feed at night just before or after lights out.
