    Default Yawning with shed?

    Is this common? I have not seen it with my other ones, but during a shed one of my frogs kept yawning and scratching then went back to normal behavior.

    No need to worry, this is normal. The frogs are swallowing the skin though the corners of their mouth which gives them the yawning appearance. They eat the skin because it will provide them with beneficial nutrients later on

    Some additional concern. The yawning has stopped but he seems to be more lethargic than the others. He's still eating and calling, but I am concerned

    Default Yawning with shed?

    Hi elliotulysses,

    If it looks like in this video, he is shedding. He could be tired afterwards, but should bounce back to his normal behaviors.

    Very interesting video, Ive never seen any of my FBTs shed their skin on land, always in the water section.
