Isn’t he adorable? I stood there squeeing over the little dude for a good five minutes, and he just sat patiently. He was quiet, but his buddies out in the yard were making a racket – it’s amazing how much sound can come out of such a tiny creature. I should try and record the frog symphony one night and share it with you.
I desperately want pet frogs now, except that Dave reminded me I’d need to be feeding them live bugs, and that’s just not going to happen. I’ll have to be satisfied with our backyard amphibian wildlife refuge. Last year we had tadpoles in the murky pool-cover water, but this year we haven’t seen any, probably because we’re trying to drain it regularly, mostly to keep mosquitoes from breeding there. My legs can attest to the fact that we’re not doing much to hurt mosquito population growth. Maybe we need to attract more frogs so they can eat more mosquitoes. Do frogs eat mosquitoes?
