    Exclamation Whites tree frog Not eating and mysterious white line?

    I have got a whites tree frog a few weeks ago and it was eating Absoloutely fine. but now it's taking a while to eat and started ignoring food today. iv'e heard people dust crickets every feeding so i did that. am i doing it wrong? and theres is a weird white line underneath the eyes of my frogs running form the ear to underneath the eye i alternate between herpivite and reptile calcium powder. (extra info: i accidently dusted with calcium twice if that is a concern.)

    Can you describe the enclosure, temperatures, humidity, light cycle, size of the frog, the amount of time it’s been in your care and whom you purchased it from. Pictures will help if you have any of the eye.

    the enclosure is a 5-10 gallon tank, humididty is relatively high, wakes up at night, been in my care for a few weeks, petco, and also it just ate! apparently it doesn't eat crickets that aren't dusted? i will get the photo of the line under the eye

    I’m glad your frog has resumed feeding. I can not identify the white mark. It could be anything from retained skin from a shed to an infection. I don’t say that to panic you but I would monitor it. Whites treefrogs are a generally healthy species but if you are concerned contact a vet familiar with exotics for an exam. Overall it looks well fed and alert and the blue color indicates it’s probably of Australian lineage which is good because then it’s captive bred. Dusting with supplements is a good idea but don’t overdust as sometimes the frogs find it unpalatable. I dust with repashy calcium plus every other feeding abd I use reptivite once a week. Also you may want to upgrade to a larger enclosure such as a 20 gallon high. Although not super active this species benefits from a larger enclosure.
