A friend and co-worker of the Evil Twin went to the beach over the summer with her extended family. She and her mom ended up getting dwarf frogs and their little environments (a little box, some gravel, a snail and a piece of bamboo or something).
The Evil Twin's co-worker (and friend) ended up bringing hers to work and the Evil Twin told us all how adorable they were.
Unfortunately, about a month or so after their return from vacation, our friend's father passed away. Her mom didn't think she had the energy to keep up with her frogs. I mean, I understand - you lose your spouse and nothing else seems quite that important anymore.
So, the frogs came to live at our house.
This is Hopper. Or, maybe it's Bopper - we can't really tell them apart. But, that little round black thing is the snail, Gary. He helps to keep the tank clean.
What's funny is that I'll walk by and see one or the other standing like this often. They just hang out like that. It's hilarious.
Here's the other little frog:
As you can tell, they like just standing around a lot.
Here's another shot:
They really entertain us. And, as I said before, they are the new centerpiece of our dining room table, so while we eat dinner (yes, I'm the wife who has dinner on the table when my hard working husband comes in and then we're the family who eats together), we watch them do their thing.
They came with little pellets that are their food. They need to be fed two pellets per frog, twice a week.
They also will periodically jump to the top of the water and take a breath of air at the top of the tank, but mostly, they spend all their time in the water.
Sometimes, we all gather around the table even when it isn't dinnertime to watch them. They're just SO cute!
So, there are the frogs - and they're not even half naked - they are all the way naked and I think the guy in the first picture is giving you the full monty!
What in the world is this blog coming to? ;-)
