    Default What's up with my baby American Green Tree Frog?

    Just got home after a long day and when I went in to check on my Pacman frog my eyes instead landed on one of my baby American Green frogs. One of my baby Green American's was on the side of the cage that they are in (12 3/4" long by 7 1/2" wide by 11" tall, dome topped) but its legs were all stretched out. I opened the top and the frog just fell to the bottom (on it's back then flipped over). I panicked, picked it up and it went all scrunched up. I put it back down and grabbed a bottle of spring water and sprinkled some on it, the water revived the frog and he's now on the side of the cage.

    I have 3 American Green Tree Frogs in this cage, all the size of near nickles and they eat 3 times a week calcium dusted crickets. There's 2 fake flowers in their cage, a pill cap (very cleaned!!) with bottled water for water and the substrate is coco fibers. Temperature is in the high 70's and humidity is 60%. I feed these frogs half inch crickets, the smaller the better. Last time they were fed was last night, I believe this one frog did eat last night. In the daytime I put them near my window so they can get some sunshine.

    What could possibly be wrong with this baby AGTF?

    Can you post a pic of the frog and enclosure? The enclosure sounds like it is too small but it might work for a while till they get bigger. I think they should eat every day since they are so young. They also need a bigger water dish to soak in. He could be dehydrated if all they have is a pill cap full of water.

    Sadly, he passed . I don't get it, he was so healthy and fat, no pink or red on its back legs or rear but I did notice that the legs on this one particular frog are thinner than the others in the enclosure. I will go snap a picture of him and the cage now.

    I am sorry for your loss. That is strange about his legs, I wonder what happened?
