    Hello guys,
    it's been a while since i've been here,
    Well my 3yo pacman frog has gone in aestivation for the third time. But this time it is longer. He still seems to be shedding. He has stopped eating in november 2019.
    So, not interested in live pinkies, not interested in dubias nor nightcrawlers. He just dodges food and turns arround. Have not yet tried more crickets. I know this is normal in estivation. My concern is that it has been a long estivation already.
    I've been putting him in water honey bath, no joy either.
    He's becoming skinny...
    Well usually this behavoir last about 4 months, this year is already in 6 months and counting.
    I've no idea what is happening.
    I've changed its substrate from ecoearth to another brand but it should be the same.
    Do any of you have an idea of what is happening?
