Hey guys, got a question for ya. So I've had my horned frog for a while now...about six years, and he's never been a really agressive eater but lately he just hasn't been eating much at all. I've been feeding him adult mice every 2 or 3 weeks or so and he's been happy and healthy on this diet for a long time, but now he just doesn't seem to want to eat. He hasn't eaten since the first or second week of september. He'll lunge at a mouse once, and if he misses he'll usually give up, and he'll never chase down his prey, it has to be right in front of his face. I tried crickets the other week and he completely ignored them. Today I tried some meal worms and he ate one of them so that was some progress. Anyway...I guess my question is, is there a way to make my frog more agressive? Should I raise the tank temp? His tank temp is around 75 degrees.
