 My tree frog is sick

My tree frog seems to be a little fatter then the day before. Iwent to a friends house and when I came back he seemed fatter and has his legs curled under him. I’m not sure if he might be sleeping or not. I gave a fruit fly before I left and it isn’t in the tank so I assume he ate it

Treefrogs are nocturnal creatures that normally sleep during the day and become active at night. When they sleep, they often pick a spot on a plant stem or leaf or the glass side of the terrarium tank, and typically rest with their legs tucked under them. Is this how your frog is behaving? If so, that sounds normal... I would only worry about its health if you see it spending too much time on the ground, having trouble climbing, etc.

I would like to suggest also that you vary your treefrog’s diet by offering it small crickets, which should be gut loaded by keeping them in a container and feeding them flake fish food.
