I am here asking this question for my Aunt, not for me. She recently was at a pet store, and found a few pacman frogs, one being albino, and she fell in love. She wants to get a proper area for an Albino Pacman Frog. What are things you need? Housing? Food? Setup? Temperature? Humidity? Bedding? Any help is greatly appreciated. Oh, and I am sorry for posting this in the reptiles section, they don't have an amphibian one, sorry.
i had an albino pacman frog, his set up was as follows..
Fishtank, with forest bedding on the bottom about 2-3 inches deep, a shallow water dish with gravel at the bottom as they aren't great swimmers. and a heat mat under the tank. simple as that, a few fake plants for prettynes and a nice piece of decrative log.
keep the tank moist with a misting every day. the frog won't do much, they tend to just dig themselves into a burrow and sit and wait for food.
There is a bit of debate over UV with these frogs, some say they shouldn't have it becuase they are albino, and some say that they should, i didn't have UV with mine and he was fine, just make sure you use calcium suppliments on his food.
As for food… as a baby mine love earthworms, which you can order on line. and crickets and locusts (hoppers) as an adult he got the same just bigger with the odd defrosted mice in too, which he loved, he got the the stage/size where he would happily down a small adult mouse in one go.
They are simple and lovely animals to keep. Sadly mine passed away, due to old age i believe.
Oh and don't handle him with dry hands, always make sure your hands are wet and kept at a low distance from the ground so he doesn't hurt himself when he jumps out of your hands (which he will do!!) as he gets bigger you prob won't want to handle him as they are just one big mouth and, dispite their squidgey appearance, pack a good punch with their hardened gum/teeth.
