Hi, I have a Ornate Pacman, he's roughly about a years old, from the petstore. I havn't had him long.
He's been deep burried asleep for over a week now. It's been pretty cold in Wales this last week.
Is my frog cold so he's just sleeping it off?
Is he tired after overindulging on crickets last week?
Or is there something wrong?

Welcome to the Frog.


Sleeping, eating, and shitting is what these frogs do. They can stay under for many months at a time. You can help by keeping the temps and humidity up though, but when they are ready for rest, they are gonna burrow, like it or not. This is a major part of keeping them.

Please tell me you aren't a dude.

They can burrow for months. Mine was buried for 9 months a couple of years ago. No worries.
Use the search function on the forum, you will often find threads with similar issues.

Bill, it's not nice to talk about people's looks.

My Caatinga Horned frog did just the same. Ate and sleeped for weeks. His eyes have been peeking outside his burrow lately.

My C. Cranwelli does this every winter. Aestivation.
