ok so i have had this frog for years i used to have two but the other one passed away a few years ago. i reasently moved and was unable to take my frog with me but my parents take care of it for me. as far as i know they do everything the same way as i did for years. but now my frog is always a light brown color with green spots all over it. it has started to loose alot of weight and hardly ever eats. its horrible and it makes me feel awful. i have tried changing its diet up normaly it only gets crickets but now im trying meal worms i read somewhere that sometimes they need a change up or also vitamins to help with weight loss. if anyone has any info they can give me to help please do!!!! thank you all

Suggest you take it to a vet if possible, could be some problem with parasites. But, avoid mealworms please, they are difficult to diogest, instead focus on gut-loading your crickets to make them more nutritious (fish food flakes will work fine). Also try to provide a well planted, naturalistic habitat with golighting (full spectrum fluorescent lamp, timed to go on in the morning, off at night).
