product highlights

Look to PetSmart for your very own PacMan Frog. This unique Frog hails from South America, and gets its name from the Pac-Man video game character with their large mouths and abdomens. These frogs have mouths as wide as their bodies, are incredibly large, and are one of the few frogs with teeth. Add this fun and unique creature to your home.

Features: May live up to 10 years in captivity; Grow up to 8 inches; Originate from humid environments
Includes: 1 Pacman Frog
Intended For: Ages 12 and up
Color: Comes in a variety of colors
Size: Up to 8 in (20 cm)

Feeding Instructions:
An ample amount of water should 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 supplementation and 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.


  • Use 10 gallon glass tank
  • These frogs should always be housed individually as they are known to be cannibalistic and will eat other frogs or animals in the habitat
  • Habitat should be misted twice daily to maintain humidity levels and provide drinking water

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Simple Pet I bought one from this chain back in June; he is bigger and very spoiled. Mine hides in the coconut fiber most of the time; you only see him when he is hungry but he is easy to find in the dirt with gently handling through the dirt. He eats two medium size comet goldfish now every two or three days and is over three inches around. This frog is not normal but is proof they can be very friendly with proper care. He has became so spoiled he liked to be hand fed his food; literally held in your hand and rub under his chin to open his mouth and be hand fed his fish or super worms. Remember frogs have sensitive skin so always wash your hands very well before and after handling them. He is held a few times a week and does like to be held. Not all frogs like attention and being held but gentle handling and getting them young like they are sold here and time. And in a few months you too can train a Pacman frog to be spoiled and tame as well. But all frogs will bite form time to time; even ours will grab a finger when hungry thinking it is food; because they have poor eye sight. Just remember not to pull away from them if they do bite; you will hurt their tiny teeth and do damage; just gentle persuade them to let go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Beginner Frog I wanted a frog that was easy to care for and didn't need a huge tank. I went to Petsmart and fell for a Pacman frog. I bought Pacman that's his name and am keeping him now in a Reptile Ranch Kritter Keeper. I feed him crickets every couple of days, feeder goldfish once a week and when he is older i'll feed him frozen mice but only for a treat I highly recommend this frog for beginners, It eats like the game Pacman

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have to agree with other guy Our little pacman frog seems to have settled in very nicely. One of the other reviewers mentioned how they eat from their hand... and this little guy is seriously domesticated. Only had him/her for a few days now, and I stick my hand in to feed, and it knows what's going on and tries to take the food from my hand before I can even place it in the tank! So, as far as I can tell, it doesn't have a problem with humans. Doesn't show fear or anything, just burrows in the coconut fiber unless it sees my hand, in which case it starts sending its VERY sticky tongue in my hand's direction to get at the food. Basically, this is a cute little round frog that seems to have no problem at all living the life with a human. If it's a frog you want, totally would recommend this guy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Personalized! I have had this frog for almost a month and it is the greatest beginner amphibian/reptile out in the market. Feeding is simple yet fun. A very simple yet beautiful creature as well. It is very lovable as it is chubby and stout.

    need desert or tropical cage

    Asked by: Ben10
    Hello! The terrarium you'll need is a glass tank, 10-20 gallons. Although they are from a tropical region, so they'll need a high humidity of 60%-70%. They need Eco-Earth substrate to hold in the humidity, so not sand like in a desert biome. Hopefully this answers your question! :)

    Can I use a hermit crab cage

    Asked by: Siltycat
    They can live in a minimum of 10 gallon tank that is preferably glass for the humidity, but any material is fine as long as its 10 or more gallons.

    How big do they get. How long do PacMan Frogs live. 

    Asked by: Yvonne B256
    The females will get 6-7 inches, but the males are a few inches smaller. Pacman frogs live 8-10 years if kept healthy.
