I bought a Ceratophrys cranwelli about a week ago and I'm having trouble getting it to eat. Its about 3in and is a juvenile, It was eating fine for the first 3 or 4 days, 1 large cricket a day. Then, out of the blue, it stopped eating. I wasn't worried for the first time, I just thought he wasn't hungry. He hasn't eaten in 5 days. I scheduled a vet's appointment to see if anything is wrong with him. Is there?

When I first got mine it would go periods without eating like this. Try an appropriately sized hornworm, they seem to be a favorite. Also backing up @Liquifin

He died. We found out that he was already sick before we got him, hence the small price. RIP

Are you keeping it in water or is it in a separate container? It doesn't look skinny to me so it isn't too concerning. Enclosure pictures would help as well for further insight as well as temps.
At the time the picture was taken I was giving him a bath.
