Name: The Pac-Man frog is named after the popular arcade game protagonist, and for good reason! These frogs seem to be able to fit anything in their mouths, including each other!

Certified Breeder Program: These Pac-Man frogs were procured via our Certified Breeder Program. This certification process will allow us to bring a wider variety of healthy, captive bred animals to you, our customers. We stand behind these animals just like any animals bred at our facility. Besides the fact we’ll be offering more animals, what do you need to know about Josh’s Frogs Certified Breeder Partnership? You need to know these animals are from people with the same approach to animal keeping and breeding that we do, are disease free, and most importantly captive bred! To learn more, please read our blog on the Josh's Frogs Certified Breeder Program.

Recommended Terrarium Size & Setup: Pac-Man frogs are sit-and-wait predators. They spend the majority of their time burrowed into the substrate with their eyes (and horns in some species) above the substrate. Because of this, caging does not need be spacious. Babies can be kept in small, plastic reptile enclosures, whereas adults can be caged in enclosures of 10 to 20 gallons.

Pac-Man frogs love to burrow. Therefore they require a substrate that they can dig in to. Coir (ground coconut) makes a great substrate and is available at most pet stores. Josh's Frogs offers Complete Care Kits for your convenience. 

Want to spice up your enclosure with live plants? Our experts have curated kits of easy-to-care-for and SAFE plants for your Pac-Man. Check them out here!

Temperature (°F): They do best when kept in the mid-high 70s. At Josh's Frogs, we house our Pac-mans at 75-85 degrees. Temperatures in the high 80s can quickly be fatal, especially when coupled with a lack of water or humidity. Measure temperature with a digital temperature gauge.

Humidity: Pac-Man Frogs require moderately high humidity, and are best kept at 60-70% humidity. Providing ventilation is very important - we recommend using at least a half screen top. Stagnant, humid conditions quickly leads to bacterial skin infections in Pac Man Frogs. A large dish of clean water should always be provided. Monitor humidity with a digital hygrometer.

Size: These frogs can reach adult size in 10-12 months. Females may be up to 5" in length, with males slightly smaller.

Age: With proper care, Pac-Man frogs can live up to and over 5 years. Reports of 8-10 year old animals abound, and many hobbyists routinley keep Pac-Man frogs for 4-5 years. 

Feeding: As adults, Pac-Mans will easily eat adult crickets, dubia roaches, and whole nightcrawlers. Prey items should be dusted with a quality vitamin/mineral supplement. At Josh's Frogs, we dust with Repashy Calcium Plus, RepCal Calcium with D3, and RepCal Herptivite.

Sexing: When mature, they are fairly straightforward to sex if you have multiple animals of the same age. Females are larger than males. Mature male Pac-Man frogs tend to call at night.

Color/Pattern: There are dozens of different color varieties of pac-man frogs.

Social Behavior: These frogs are loners, and will eat each other. Housing them individually is strongly recommended. Even when starting out with several frogs, when housed together you'll typically end up with one.

Breeding: Pac-Man Frogs are produced in large numbers for the pet trade, but breeding via natural means (not utilizing hormones) is tricky and unpredictable. When they are bred, a dry season is replicated, followed by a wet season and upswing in food intake. Mature animals are then introduced into a rain chamber, where eggs are deposited in water. Check out our video of Josh's Frogs Rain Chamber Setup.

History in the Hobby: Pac-Man Frogs have been popular in the pet trade for a long time. They are fairly easy to breed via artificial methods, which means they are readily available. Pac Man Frogs come in a wide range of color and pattern mutations.
