    Default Pacman frog staying dirty

    Our strawberry pineapple pacman female Cake is eating fine but for a week has stayed dirty, covered with moist cocoearth. She is at least two years old and eats crickets, worms, and frozen (thawed) pinkies. She used to be clean and plump and lovely but now sits partially under the dirt. Temp kept at 80, humidity at around 70%. She used to sit in her water dish but now most of her is covered with dirt. She readily grabs food but looks like Pig Pen. Is this normal?

    Yep! If you've ever touched a frog, you know that they are moist and slightly sticky, hence why her substrate is sticking to her. She is probably not soaking because she is getting enough moisture from the substrate alone. Don't remove the water dish though! It's important to always give frogs access to fresh clean water no matter what.

    Olivia, thanks. Today Cake finally looks all clean and beautiful again. She jumped out of her hidey hole so i offered her a night crawler. She was excited.
