Feeding Instructions:
An ample amount of water sold always be present. Pacman Frogs absorb water through their skin and must be provided with a shallow dish large enough for soaking. Water bowls should be emptied and refilled daily.

Pacman Frogs are insectivores, meaning their diet consists of primarily insects. They require calcium supplementationand may benefit from a reptile multivitamin as part of their diet. Pacman Frogs are best fed at night.

These frogs can eat frozen, defrosted pinkies as they get larger, but hunt by seeing movement, so the food would need to be held with tongs and wiggled in front of it. They can be trained to eat in this fashion.

Handling: Use caution when handling Pacman Frogs. They have sensitive skin and do not enjoy being handled. Supervise children around pets.

Pets may transmit disease to humans. Be sure to wash your hands before and after handling your pet or cleaning its home.
