Thread: Green Tree Frog stopped eating or moving

  1. #1

    Default Green Tree Frog stopped eating or moving

    I bought a Green Tree Frog from the pet store on Sunday and fed him two crickets. He ate them within 20 minutes then he pooped. Yesterday he was pretty active during the morning and then I fed him some crickets in the evening. This morning he hasn't moved nor eaten any crickets. Is he alright? Everything else is normal and the lighting in my room is natural sunlight from the window. I don't know how old he is either (although I think it's a male). He is about 2inches long but I haven't heard him calling. Also, how many crickets can/should be in the tank with him? I meant to put in two, but four fell in. He's not scared of them or anything, right? The crickets are about the distance from my frog's eyes to his snout. Oh! When I was bringing him home from the pet store I noticed that he has one small orange spot on his back, what is that supposed to be? Thank you for any help you can give. I hope I'm just being an overly concerned new frog owner
