    you can try just placing crickets or worm near him if he does not eat it you can try picking the cricket and worm and place it near your pacman frog's mouth or try tweezers and rub it in its lips till it eats it.

    Hi manouela

    It is perfectly normal for a Pacman to burrow all day and come out at night. when it is time to feed your Pac Just unbury his/her head so he/she can see the crickets and he/she. should come on out to eat. if you have a baby you should feed him/her daily. Be sure to dust his/her food with a reptile. multivitamin once a week and with a calcium supplement with Vitamin D3 every other feeding, but not with both at the same time in the same feeding

    well when i first got my little bubba he didnt eat anything but superworms for like a week and i found out that it was a no no on my part but its all he would eat :P and it took 3 days for my pac to even eat when i first brought him home. Try getting some hornworms they are super healthy for growing frogs and mine goes nuts over them.

    All water you use must be de-chlorinated. Hiking water/the water you use to expand his substrate and soaking dish. everything must be chemical free.

    Sometimes they won't eat if they are comfortable and burrowed in their substrate (mine is just that lazy). If he still won't eat in his regular enclosure, try uncovering him and misting him (or even sitting him in his water dish) right before feeding. This always seemed to make mine more alert and willing to move about when he was a baby... Now he just eats whatever walks in front of him.

    If you use tap water you have go buy a water conditioner to treat it and remove chemicals. if you use bottled water it must be natural spring water.

    When feeding the pacman with superworm, I would rip the head off so the two "pinchers" won't hurt the frog internally. Frogs are different with reptiles in terms of not killing its prey with chewing, instead they swallow their prey whole.
