    Question Tomato frog not eating.......again...

    Hi FF, Ive had problems in the past with my tomato frog Bob fasting for weeks at a time, He's started to not eat again. His temps in the cage are fine nothing above 80 and i use a 40 watt bulb in a 15 gallon "Breeder". Whenever a cricket crosses his path in front of his face he just ignores it. He doesn't feel impacted, Is he just stubborn about eating or is he beginning to brumate for winter?

    Lucy my adult goes through this as well but just when I think there is an issue she surprises me and eats. I hope you don't have an issue.

    If your temps. humidity, and water (dechlorinated tap?) are OK; would just observe for any dramatic weight loss. If worried, could do a fecal test .
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​
