    Default Whites tree frog stopped croaking

    Our Whites tree frog (Dumpy) hasn't croaked in a couple of months. We've had him for about a year and up until then, he would croak quite verbosely on a regular basis. He also doesn't eat as voraciously as he used to. Before, he would start hunting and eating as soon as we drop crickets in his habitat, and now he doesn't even notice the crickets it seems. Is he sick? Or - i know this sounds crazy - depressed? What can we do to help him? We miss our old Dumpy!

    Sounds lethargic?

    Are you supplementing - regularly- with Vits and Calcium with Vit D.

    Also, think about having the vet do a fecal test for parasites

    Double check the temps in the tank.( be sure it's warm enough ) Use more than one thermometer!!!

    Def check the temperature, think about a fecal test. Also it may be a normal reaction to a change in seasons.
