Average Growth: 4 to 8 inches in body length
Average Lifespan: 5 - 7 years
Type: Terrestrial, burrowing
Origin: South American rainforest
Humidity and Temperature: 75 - 85% Humidity, 25
Behaviour: Not a very friendly frog
in general. May inflict a panful bite if it mistakens finger for food however it can be taught not to bite fingers from young.
Rapid eaters with a large appetite. They may be able to jump and swim well when they're young but they become bad at it as
they grow older. They are strictly solitary creatures. Placing two or more pacman frogs together in an enclosure will result
in cannibalism. They are also nocturnal and only males will tend to croak.
Housing: Plastic or glass tank measuring
at least 1.5 x 1 feet. They may not require alot of space but a bigger area would allow a fancier and more complex setup.
Use peat moss as substrate and sphagnum moss covering the peat. Provide a water dish just big enough for the frog to
dip in. the water should be below the frog's nose level. The frog may defecate in the water dish so replace the water daily.
Diet: Mealworms (with head crushed),
earthworms, waxworms, crickets, feeder fish, pinkie mice, fuzzy mice, small frogs. It's important not to over feed your frog
or it may die.
Make sure that the water you use is dechlorinated water. Pacman frogs are ferocious eaters so it is best to feed the frog
using a rounded tip forcep to avoid harming yourself and your frog.
