More of my frogs!

More of my frogs!

A few weeks ago, I decided to finally get frogs to put in my fishtank. So my sister and I went to the fish store to get African Dwarf frogs. They didn’t have any, because the newts that normally are peaceful tank-sharers with the African frogs ate them all.

So I got spotted floating frogs (aka Indonesian floating frogs) instead. They eat live food (pinhead crickets) which was weird at first, but I am used to it now. Having to feed and care for my pets’ food (no broccoli or spinach for the crickets, unless I want to poison my frogs, only stuff like romaine lettuce and carrots and sweet potato) is also kinda funny to me.

My cat finds the frogs incredibly fascinating. It makes me laugh a lot. They mostly just float around the tank, but feeding time is always an event.Lots of swimming then.

I have named them after Wizard of Oz characters, although I will admit not being sure if Dorothy is actually a girl or not. I also don’t know if Tin Man, Scarecrow and Cowardly Lion are boys, either.

How do you tell gender on frogs? I have no idea.
