Pac man not eating

My Pac Man hasn't eated in over 2 weeks. The last time he ate he has a pinkie rat and my tanzanian big-eyed treefrog that had a broken back. He was in a smaller tank then and now he is in a 10 gallon. I had a smaller pac man about 5 years ago and it ate cricket contantly, but this one doesn't like them as far as I can tell. How often does a 6 inch pac man need to eat?

I'd get him to a vet. It sounds like something else is going on. They should eat more than once every two weeks...

Especially since you recently had another amphibian die of possible RedLeg.

I'm with Bob, if its kept properly otherwise, he should be ready to eat just about any time you want to feed him... but on a side note, many species of amphibians have toxic skin secretions. Most are not all that harmful, but to a potential predator species they could be. Using amphibians for feeders is a risky proposition and could very well be the problem, or at least a contributing issue. Also, they're quite prone to getting bunged up when fed large meals, he may need some time to pass his last one.

I'd take him to a vet...that's a long time to go without food.
