Got a cranwelli about a week ago, and of course it hasnt eaten since Ive had it. I watched in the store for about 3 weeks, always asking them to feed it and it always ate. It also always looked healthy.
Its cage is an exoterra 12" cube, as the frog is only 1.5". It has been set up for 2 months, planted with organic dirt and lotsa cool plants, and growing in nicely. The temp is a steady 82day and 70-75nite. Humidity is rock solid at 78% with very infrequent spraying. It has 3" of soil, a hide log, and a water bowl. Lighting provided by a 26w PC "rainforest" bulb. Undertank heater is the smallest zoomed one, on a reostat.
Anyway, it finally unburied itself and I saw it just under the log. It was kind of gaping it mouth every few seconds, in an "sick" kinda way compared to a threat posture. I took some long forceps and stuffed a silkworm in when it opened up. It gulped it down, with about 6 more following(three were dusted with reptivite w/d3). It ate them all once i got the tip of the worm in.
I have been putting thes worms (and mealies/crickets/etc) in front of its face everynite Ive had it with no success. And now, about an hour later, its just sitting there with its mouth not exactly open, but not sealed shut in the usual way. It has not done the gaping(that Ive noticed) since the feeding.
Sorry so long-winded, Any and all thoughts or ideas are welcomed. Thanks, its been awhile since Ive posted.
