Thread: Frog not sleeping during the day. Possible health problems?

    Default Frog not sleeping during the day. Possible health problems?

    Hi All,

    Is it normal behavior for one of my frogs to be awake during the day with the lights on? Noticed that his pupils are still large with lights on.

    I recently got these two whites a week ago. They have been eating well. Normal routine of soaking in the water at night etc.

    Just noticed that one of them doesn't seem to hide away and sleep during the day when i have the lights on. The other one does. And am a bit worried!

    Default Re: Frog not sleeping during the day. Possible health problems?

    Hey, I wouldn't worry. Sometimes one of my frogs wakes up late and then is still awake in the morning. Just keep an eye on him and see how his appetite is.

    Also I've heard some tap water is now treated by chloramine instead of chlorine. The chloramine doesn't "gas off" as easily so setting it out may not do anything. I don't know if this applies to you at all though.
