Thread: Quick Clarifications? (Signs of illness? Is UV lighting needed?)

    Question Quick Clarifications? (Signs of illness? Is UV lighting needed?)

    Iíve had my pacman frog for a couple months, and recently a few questions have arose which Iíd love answers for! Iíve seen it debated everywhere but do pacmans need UV lights? And which would be recommended? My current setup gets a little, but Iím unsure about lighting for the new setup Iím creating! I also wanted to question if some behavior was normal, or a sign of illness. My pacman isnít overly excited for food, and sometimes wonít latch when I put it in front of her? She can, but sometimes she just opens her mouth? And as of late, sheís been burrowing to the point sheís completely gone, underneath the dirt. She will stay in this burrow for days. She is also a little sluggish but overall seems to act normal, eating her food, shedding, normal poop, normal color. Could it be a vitamin issue? Or something else with her setup? Thanks
    (Couple pics included of her)
    EDIT: her legs appear slightly red but no lesions and appetite isnít too bad?

    I’m not absolutely certain about the UV debate, but if possible I would add a UV light just to be safe. The sluggishness and reduced appetite may be due to early MBD.
