    Unhappy My baby pacman wont eat!?

    So i recently purchased a baby pacman from petsmart and have all the right supplies the temp is 80 degrees farenheit and humidity is 75. I got him 3 days ago and he hasnt eaten a single cricket i put in front of him using tongs. All he is doing is burrowing. I dont want him to die of not eating food!PLEASE HELP!

    First off, Relax. It takes a definite few days for your baby to adjust. Burrowing is what these frogs do. I wouldn't worry about tong feeding at the momebt either. Start with grtting him eating first then move forward. Please fill these questions out and post them on this thread so we can get you set up perfect.

    Hello and welcome to FF! Your frog is probably not eating because it's stressed from transfer and new enclosure. Please answer above questions the best you can so we can identify any stress related issues (like a too big enclosure). Remember to use dechlorinated tap for water dish and spraying and gut load crickets with fresh carrots and lettuce, cereals like oats and cherios, and veggie type fish food flakes. Also, read this excellent care article: . Good luck !
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​
