 Help! bloated green tree frog!

One of my 2 USA green tree frogs is extremely bloated and I canít find much info on why this could be. He (or maybe she?) has been sitting in the water dish for 2-3 days now looking absolutely huge! I wondered if it might be shedding, or maybe it has intestinal worms or something? Iíd also considered that I might actually have a male and female and maybe itís going to spawn... but I donít know what a pregnant frog looks like! Obviously Iíll take it to the vet if it doesnít get better but first I wondered if there might be a simple explanation. Thanks in advance! mo x x

 Help! bloated green tree frog!

too late my frog already died... RIP. I feel so bad, I donít know what was wrong with him. The other frog is fine although Iíll take him to the vet just in case. Popr thing, heís missing his friend already. Could it have been worms or something, and if so how would he have got them? thanks, mo x x

He could have eaten substrate or something, perhaps-maybe impaction of his intestines...

Sorry to hear heís gone.
