    thanks fellow frogsmen!
    Its not a Pacific Horned Frog Ceratophrys stolzmani. Its a Cranwelli. I cannot get a good look from the pictures of what morph of cranwelli it is though.

    One more thing, the reason the legs look longer is because they are splayed out. When these frogs are kept on water over a slick surface (such as glass or plastic), they have nothing to grip against. This does not allow their legs to develop properly. Eventually it leads to malformation and muscle atrophy. These are not aquatic frogs and should not be kept as such.

    That Pacman is being kept in the wrong environment and presume fed the wrong food too (goldfish). Recommend you pass this one and keep looking for a healthier animal. Good luck !
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​

    yeah, I agree with Carlos, that frog is too much work for you, you better get healthier one especially if you wanna breed it eventually as you said in your first post. try to find breeders around you and get directly.
    Save one animal and it doesn't change the world, but it surely changes the world for that one animal!

    awesome feedback guys! appreciate it a lot... i really feel bad on the poor fella & i made decision of keeping him.
    in the phils it is really rare to get pacman frogs specially with morphs as of people dunno value out of morphs and i am only a passionate hobbyiest.
    i made a deal out that pet store and they let it go for 100$ iv been giving it sufficient high calcum and protein for recovery..

    hes been gaining alot of weight lately and i dhust crickets 1nce a week as far as the nutrients concern hes Goldfish consumption has declined i only give him feeder fish occationally.. since they are use to it theyv been really picky eating crickets even fuzzies and meal worms but then again i get to feed them by luck..

    hes rear legs are getting back in proportion and in this picture i only cleaned him after he boweled he loves hes new cocofiber substrate and hes been able to borrow little by little...

    i hate how some pet store dunno the proper care and just let em be for profit.....
    ill keep this little fella for keeps! i dunno if he's a female or male tough.. still hard to find since i dunno how many months. he looks sub adult to me tough, doesnt make any sounds croaks.

    You be feeding him every other day to every 2 days. Offer him Night Crawlers and you are better off not to offer him fish. They are loaded with disease. Don't feed live mice. You can give him prekilled frozen/thawed mice once a month.

    Offer a variety of food, but you are better off to stay away from giving him fish.

    Another good choice for live feeder is Blaptica Dubia roaches.
    They are easy to start a colony and in 5 to 6 months you will have a surplus.

    I just got 50 nymphs from another member here and I fed a few of them to my Little Peptio
    and He loves them.

    As far as worms go just about any earth work except Red wrigglers Those make a bad tasting gel when bitten and will make your frog
    hate worms.
    I gave one to my Whites and I wish I would have gotten it on video. He opened up his mouth as wide as he could and took both of his
    front legs trying to get that worm out of his mouth while backing up nearly a foot. LOL

    If those are true African Night Crawlers (Eudrillus eugeniae), they are OK for feeding frogs .
