    Default Changed Substrate, frog buried himself and hasn't come up for 2 days. Normal?

    I have had this guy for a month now (First pacman) I've been reading this forum and did a lot of research before buying him. Is it normal for them to bury themselves and not come up for a few days? Should I dig him out to feed him? Also, he/she doesn't seem to be a big fan of crickets, but he LOVES earthworms. Is it OK to put some calcium on the Earthworms?

    Totally normal, my Pacman buries himself completely (2-3" deep) for weeks at a time, so I wouldn't be worried! He'll come up when he's hungry.

    Babies are the only ones you need to worry about if its beyond 2 days. Adults that are well fed can go quite a while without food.

    Thanks, He or She is definitely not a baby, but also not fully grown. I'll just wait it out and hopefully he/she is all good.

    If you get worried you can uncover his/her head so the frog can see and offer food.

    His head was showing this morning when I woke up, I dangled a worm in front of him and he ate that up right away.
