Pacman frog brumation disturbed

Postby squamata » Thu Jun 08, 2017 4:35 am



I think I've accidentally disturbed my pacman's frog brumation. He refused the last couple of feeds which is not unusual for him. Although I didn't think he was in brumation.

Yesterday I had a new setup ready for him, so went to move him into the new viv. As I did I found that his back was dry and shiny and that he had a thick layer of mucus around him. I put him into his new setup and have left him be.

Do I need to do anything to make him more comfortable now that I've disturbed him? His warm side was around 24C so I've upped it to 28C in his new viv. When should I try feeding him again? Thanks in advance for the help!
