I just bought two walking frogs from an expo. Both were pretty thin when I got them but one has fattened up. The other just keeps getting skinnier. I am afraid it will die if it doesn't eat in a day or two. What can I do to get it to eat?

put it in a different tank than the other maybe the other one is the one taking in all the elements...

butterworms and waxworms are a great source of fat to fatten up a skinny frog. they should not be used long term, and can sometimes have addictive qualities.
Also, if you are able to get him to a herp vet that can do a fecal and give you some de-wormer, that would be good to do.

I'm assuming you got Phrynomantis bifasciatus...if so you may want to consider feeding termites. Not only is that their main prey in the wild, it is a good way to fatten them up.
