I am hoping someone with some experience with Budgett's frogs can give me some insight to a problem I have recently encountered. I have two Budgett's frogs, kept in separate but identical setups (land and water accessible, with biologically filtered water that is regularly changed). The temp is close to 80 degrees amd they are fed small mice, crickets, and earthworms. One has grown substantially since acquired. The other has realized minimal growth and sheds about every three or four days. Otherwise it is outwardly healthy, active, and eats every time food items are offered. The only difference is the slower growth and the excessive shedding. When not shedding the skin is perfect. There are no lesions or imperfections on the surface of the skin. Eyes are clear. I would really appreciate any help someone could offer. Thank you, rana888
