Need a little advice. My brother was basically mistreating and mishandling his pets, including a Pac-Man frog and a puppy. I forced him to hand the animals over to me or I was going to turn him in.
Problem I have now is while the puppy I know how to treat and tend back to normal, I'm kind of clueless on the frog to an extent. I went out and got the proper stuff for it such as the tropical substrate, water dish, heat mat, and some live crickets. However, I can't get the little guy to eat. My brother stated he hasn't fed him in like two months but no matter much I try to feed him, he just won't eat. He just digs down deeper into his substrate and lays there. He won't go to his water bowl. He won't eat, move, anything. He just lays there blinking.
I've read that they can into a period called estivation due to climate changes or lack of food which can last awhile, but that's supposed to be similar to hibernation while this frog can be seen wide awake and chirping from time to time.
I really don't want him to die but I don't know where he got him from to ask any questions.
Any tips on how I'm supposed to get him to eat? Or is he just in his estivation period even though he's chirping every so often and I just have to wait?
