Periods and other punctuation can help a lot.

Other than though, the frog is probably stressed. Stop tapping behind it and let it do its thing. Are there any other frogs in the tank? They could be stressing it out as well. And just because you don't see it eat doesn't mean that it isn't eating. If it starts to lose weight that's different, but I wouldn't be worrying about it yet. good luck!

Default the other woody frog......

Sounds like the woody frog I have now... please see my previous post.

Mine was like that, no eating and getting thinner and thinner, and even worse, had no movement at all. After hand-feeding for few days, it's getting better now, and can move from one spot to another (takes a long time though).

I agree that leaving it alone is the best idea, but if it can't take hunger well, probably you want to consider the possibility of hand-feeding, in order to keep it alive first.

Good luck.

i bet it is eating, i've had my froglet for a month tomorrow, and i still haven't seen him eat, but he is chubby. Don't worry, hes eating, froglets are often shy when people are around, so its cool. Post a pic of ur frog

A method I have used to bring froglets around is to mix a small amout of suger in some luke warm water. Let the temp come down to room temp and then drop a few drops on the back of the froglet. After about 2 days they seem to be fine. I don't have an exact formula for the mixture. Just enough to make the water "sweet" to the taste. I believe this helps give the froglets some energy. Let me know if it works for you.
