I had a friend that made an impulse buy and got a pacman frog. When I first saw it, the frog was being fed very infrequently. His cage smelled strongly of feces, and he looked very thin. I told my friend I would take it (he had lost interest) and now I have a new pet. I have him in a 10-gallon. His humidity is about 60-80% and he finally has a water bowl. After three months he/she is readily taking crickets. Not sure of age, but I'm guessing 6-8 months based on information given and just under 3 inches (I think this is small based on lack of feeding by previous owner). The problems I'm having are that it won't take dusted crickets (just spits them out). I've tried to counter this by giving fuzzy mice every two weeks which it takes quickly. I've only ever kept leopard geckos and bull snakes which require little humidity so I'm a little overwhelmed. I need advice for getting this guy completely healthy. I've read every caresheet online. I'm just looking for some advice from someone who has spent a lot of time with amphibians. Thanks a lot in advance. This guy is really starting to grow on me and I'm just not sure what to do with him.
