    Default Whites Tree frog not Eating

    Help me please.

    my mum has two whites tree frogs. I am normally in charge of feeding them every night. I do not always put fresh locusts in but there are always at least 4 in the tank. Recently I have noticed that one of the frogs has become incredibly skinny and won't eat anything. He tends to avoid locusts and bury himself into the ground, The other one is completely fine. I have read other forums but I can't find one really relating to this specific case. Please help me.

    Default Re: Whites Tree frog not Eating

    I wouldn't leave locust to roam free in the tank, I would be concerned they might bite the frog and cause and infection. Also answer these questions and it may help narrow down the cause.

    1-size of enclosure
    2-# on inhabitants - specifically ( if there is another frog ---size differences ?)
    5-water - type - for both misting and soaking dish
    6-materials used for substrate
    7-enclosure set up i.e. plants( live or artificial) wood, bark etc -how were things prepared prior to being put into the viv
    8-main food source
    9-vitamins and calcium ? ( how often )
    11-what is, specifically, being used to maintain the temperature of the enclosure
    12-when is the last time he ate
    13-have you found poop lately
    14-a pic would be great ( including the frog ) any little cell phone pic is fine
    15- how old is the frog
    16-how long have you owned him
    17- is the frog wild caught or captive bred
    18- frog food- how often and if its diverse what other feeders are used as treats
    19- about how often the frog is handled
    20-is the enclosure is kept in a high or low traffic area
