    Hi Guys,
    Had this little guy for 8 years, shes about 10 years old. Recently she has been staying the water alot, and not eating (ive tried hand feeding). Please help! today she was covered in this (what i think is either poo or blood) I will be taking her to a vet dont you worry, i just want to know what is causing this, and if it is an easy fix!? Please note: she did have a vine that did have some metal poking from it although it appears there is not wound in the skin, but rather tiny small scratches on her back. Her backside has been looking quite large? ...... thanks alot guys

    As well as the symptoms that you mention there appears to be a white fungus in the groin and the skin generally does not look healthy.
    I don't know exactly what's wrong with it but that frog needs to see a herp vet ASAP or else it may die IMO. You have to have clean and warm conditions in the meantime and separate it from any others. What has its water quality been like?
    Good husbandry, especially clean water is very important (read critical) in keeping many species of frog.

    There's a Frog and Tadpole Study Group - FATS on Facebook that might be able to help you out,

    water quality is the most important part of keeping froggies.
