Pacman Frog

Experience Level: Beginner

Nutrition and Maintenance

• 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.


Dietary Options

Examples Feeding Frequency
Insects Crickets**, silkworms and occasional waxworms

Once every two or three days.

Feed only enough that can be consumed in an overnight feeding.

*Insects should be dusted with a calcium supplement twice weekly and a reptile multivitamin once weekly.

**Crickets should be fed a gut-loaded diet (commercially available nutrient-dense diet) prior to being to your frog to ensure they have the proper nutrients for a healthy diet.

• 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 Frog habitats must also be misted twice daily to maintain humidity levels and provide drinking water.

• Add a water dechlorinator to water provided in the bowl as well as water misted in the habitat.

Other Reminders
Use caution when handling pets. Pacman Frogs 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.
