What do you get when you cross Jaba the Hut and a garbage disposal? The answer to that bad joke is of course the pac-man frog. I bought my first pac-man about ten years prior to writing this review, and while I definitely love the little guys, they can be a handful. My oldest frog, which I named in poor creative taste, is Packy. He's reached maturity and is now about the size of a small dinner plate. Although they grow to prodigious sizes, I have come to realize they don't need much space.
Packy is also the first (and might I add last) amphibian to ever bite me, and incase you were wondering these guys DO have teeth. They are tenacious eaters who bury themselves in their enclosure's bedding, waiting for anything they can fit in their mouths to cross in front of their field of vision. These guys don't differentiate between bugs, mice, or even stray fingers. As tough as they may sound however, there are health issues that need to be addressed with this species. I once had two of my frogs die of the dreaded red leg fungus. Over all these little guys are a fun amphibian to keep, but they do take a little more work than you're average reptile. If you are willing to put in the time, effort, and money, these guys can make a good addition to your collection.
