About This Product

**Please note that when our photos of our Frogs and Toads are taken the lighting can be different from our facility to the lighting in your tank at home. There is a potential that different lighting may help bring out more of your frog or toads coloration. When you receive your frog or toad the coloration may be vastly different from what you may be expecting because it is under the assumption that it is nighttime and it has changed color to make it harder for predators to see them. Additionally colors and patterns may vary from animal to animal so if you have a preference feel free to mention that when scheduling your order.**

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! Ceratophrys cornuta x cranwelli is commonly called The Fantasy Pac-Man Frog.

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: 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. 

Temperature: They do best when kept in the mid-high 70s. At Josh's Frogs, we house our Pac-Mans at 72-78F. Temperatures in the high 80s F 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: At the time of sale, captive bred Pac-Man frogs from Josh’s Frogs will measure about the size of a silver dollar and be between 8 and 12 weeks old. These frogs grow quickly and can reach adult size in 10-12 months. Females may be up to 5" in length, with males slightly smaller.

Age: With proper care, they can live up to and over 10 years. Reports of 10-15 year old animals abound, and many hobbyists routinely keep Pac-Man frogs for longer. All Pac-Man frog froglets sold by Josh's Frogs are 8-12 weeks old.

Feeding: At the time of sale, captive bred Pac-Man frogs from Josh’s Frogs have been chowing down on 1/2″ crickets and pieces of nightcrawlers for several weeks and growing like weeds! As adults, Pac-Mans will easily eat adult crickets, dubia roaches, and whole nightcrawlers. Prey items should be 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, Pac-Man frogs 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. All Pac-Man froglets sold by Josh's Frogs are unsexable.

Color/Pattern: This is the 'Tricolor' phase of the Fantasy Pac-Man Frog, and tends to be mostly green with some having reddish brown coloration as well, with a creamy white belly and has dark brown markings on their backs that resemble thin butterfly wings. The number of other spots and intensity of color can vary quite a bit.

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

Breeding: The Fantasy Pac-Man frog is sterile.

Natural Range: This Pac-Man hybrid does not exist in the wild.

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. Fantasy Pac-Man Frogs are a hybrid between Cranwell's Pac-Man frog and The Surinam Horned Frog and is a "mule" and therefore sterile.

Very satisfied! Healthy froggo

This is the second pacman frog I've owned and my first live animal purchase from Josh's Frogs, though I've ordered supplies and feeders from the site in the past. My frog arrived healthy and alert. The colors are beautiful! The frog adjusted very quickly to it's new tank, staying partially burrowed with eyes peaking out. It has had a big appetite since day one. My order was delayed a little bit because the scheduling email they sent me went to spam and I had to email customer service to get the scheduling form. Not a big deal and very happy with the frog I received.
