Acquired: Pet store
Posted Jan 28, 2017
When we first acquired our Horned Frog Trevor, also known as a Pacman Frog, we were led to believe we needed a heat source, UVB and all sorts of expensive goodies - and all of it was false. Trevor lives rather contently in a large tupperware bucket about 7-8 inches deep, about a foot wide and give or take two feet long; he also has a small water dish, a fair layer of dampened Eco Earth, an old plastic container with a section cut out and flipped upside down for a hide, and some fake plants - this is all they need!
He buries himself in his dirt so that only the very top of his back and his little face show - and that's it. We only have to check on him once of twice a day since our ambient home temperature is in the mid 70s (perfect for him!) and we keep his substrate nice and moist. He even sits there and waits for his food to come to him!
Overall, they're neat little creatures and I definitely do love my little (for now) frog, but they are certainly not for everyone - especially if you want something that you can take out and handle. These guys have a habit of screaming if you pick them up!
