    Default Whites tree frog with tongue issue

    Feeding my two Whites tree frogs manually because I had been away for a few weeks (having someone else feed them while I was out) and one of them, Leia, is looking a little skinny. I noticed something dark in her mouth and then realized that it was her tongue, and when I try to feed her she just opens her mouth really wide without actually getting the cricket. She will hold it open for a few seconds at a time, and sometimes she sticks her tongue out and/or pushes her eyes in. Here is a video of me trying to feed her.
    This is unusual behavior

    I have also been worried about how filthy the vivarium is getting, as its been longer than usual since the last time its had a thorough cleaning. Im planning to take care of that today as well, and I think Ill keep Leia seperate when I take the froggies out of the tank to wipe it down and replace their substrate. I will try to feed her again when I have her alone.

    Any advice that you all have to share would be much appreciated! Please let me know if you need any more information and/or a clearer image of her potentially afflicted tongue (perhaps without the vitamin dust from the cricket in this video)

    Quarantine and immediately like you said. Have you tried feeding her without vitamins or calcium? Maybe try a new feeder? The dust could've somehow been contaminated or your frog might just be bored of her current food. I've had that happen once or twice. I would also ask the person who took care of them if they handled your frogs at. They might've not rinsed off their hands before handling.
