What species of pacman frog do you have?

Is your pacman frog an adult or a juvenile?

The regular one I guess, he's yellow with the horns. I picked the poor guy up off craigslist.... He's a little guy. I have him with a reptifogger btw...

if your pacman isn't eating, that's very bad news...
do something, change his setup, temp, humidity, substrat, food..
he should be eating a lot and anything!

It's always best to research what frog you are going to get before getting it.

Gonna need more info on your set up before we can do much for help. Temps, humidity, substrate, etc. When and what were his last meals? His last poop?

How long have you had him? How big is he? And can you post pics of the frog and the set up.

This is winter time, so they do tend to slow down alot at this time of year. These frogs can go for very long times without food, as in months at a time.

Yellow with horns means he is an albino cranwelli. Not the most ferocious eating machines around to start with.

I looked him up hes an ornate pacman. He is in ecoearth and peatmoss, with a large shallow water dish and a reptifogger. Substrate is about 3-4inches deep if not more and a 10gl enclosure. We think since we put the portable heater near him he ate the crickets we put in for him. Since we cant find them now. His last meals were dubia roaches and don't know about poops don't see them through the sub.

What is the temp in the tank? How long have you had him?

He's not an ornate though, he is a cranwelli, and they are not as big on eating as the ornates are to begin with, but also with the seasons changing, they tend to slow down alot. Get your tank temps to about 83 degrees. Find a heat source that does on top of the tank.

Ceratophrys cranwelli


That's good that he is eating again. You will have to keep an eye out for when he defecates and remove it, plus it helps to have a general idea as to when they last defecated so you know that things are alright.

the only "BRIGHT yellow" pacmans around are albinos cranwellis

a lot of cranwelli get sold as ornate, the only downside, imo, to cranwelli is that they all turn brown darker yellowish


Just to make sure
This is an abinos cranwell


this here, is a normal adult cranwell.. they can be bright apple green as babies but they mostly all turn that color, while ornate tend to keep their awesome green/red colors
I would even say it's actually quite a lighter, more yellow cranwell: usually they've got more brown, darker colors
