    Default Baby pixie frog swallowing coconut fibers, will it be okay?

    I've had my baby pixie for a little over a week and it has a good appetite, but sometimes when it catches its food, I see a hair-like fiber or two in its mouth from the coconut husk bedding. I'm worried it will get an impaction and die. Does anyone know if this is dangerous? If so, how should I fix the problem? If it's already eaten a few, is it already in danger? I'm pretty worried so please help, thanks.

    Should be alright. The coconut fiber passes through pretty decently. Just keep an eye out.

    I have heard of it causing impactions but if you keep it warm enough and it's not eating too much then it should be fine. I always feed mine with tongs or in a bare bottom enclosure to be safe and it makes sure the insects don't burrow or hide and lose their supplmentation as well.
