Welcome to the Pac Man Frog Page.

Size:
 
Circumference up to 5"
 
Temperature/Humidity:
 
Ideal daytime temperature for pac man frogs should range between 70 and 75 degrees. Additionally, an undertank heater should be used on one end of the enclosure to maintain the temperature of 85-90 degrees. Nighttime temperature should remain between 70 and 75 degrees. The humidity for pac man frogs should be kept at or near 80 percent.
 
Lighting:
 
Most Reptiles and some amphibians require ultraviolet lighting to maintain good health. Although nocturnal (mainly active at night) frogs don't require ultraviolet lighting, if it is part of the habitat design, it is recommended for 8-10 hours per day. The use of a timer will assist in maintaining an accurate schedule of light periods.
 
Feeding/Watering:
 
Pac man frogs do well on a diet consisting of a variety of vitamin/calcium dusted insects such as crickets, mealworms and waxworms. Some individuals will also eat earthworms and fish. Fresh clean water should always be available as well as daily misting of the enclosure. Adult pac man frogs should be fed 3-4 times per week.
 
Habitat/Housing:
 
Pac man frogs should always be kept singularly as cannibalism is common amoung pac man frogs. Successful permanent maintenance requires a moderatly sized terrarium (10-20 Gallon). A screen lid is essential for proper air exchange. The enclosure must include either a sloped large water bowl or allow for a swimming area. This can be accomplished by using gravel as a substrate and sloping it to form a "beach" area. It is also recommended that a small powerhead water filter is used to keep the water clean. Live plants can be used in pac man frog enclosures to maintain proper humidity levels.
 
Substrate (Bedding):
 
2" to 3" inches of Bed-A-Beast is recommended for pac man frog terrariums to maintain proper humidity levels. The substrate should be kept moist, but changedregularly to avoid bacterial growth. However, gravel should be used when createing a "beach" tank to ensure water remains clear and pump is to work efficiently.
 
General Info:
 
Pac man frogs become rather large and come in a variety of colors, including albino. For this reason, they are one of the most populer pet frogs today.
