I have an albino pacman frog. I just got him because the guy that had him couldn't keep him anymore. I think my favorites are darts, mantellas, horned frogs, mossy frogs, and bullfrogs.

White's habitat [29 May 2004|11:24pm]

[ mood | hopeful ]

Okay, I'm planning on getting a White's Tree Frog later this summer. I'm also planning on keeping him/her in my dorm room (since they won't let me keep my corn snake).

I know tanks have to be 15/20 gallons or more, but does anyone know of any plastic/light-weight habitats that I could keep a White's in to make for easy moving?
Glass aquariums are just too heavy, bulky, inconvenient... but if need be, they'll work.

Also, is a heat source required for a White's Tree Frog?

No one has posted here for a while, but I'll try my luck and see if anyone responds.

I found this community by searching for interest: white's tree frog, which I am soooo lucky to own. His name is Pookey-June and he is three years old. I will have to post some pics someday. So I guess this is hello!

The weirdest thing happened.. somehow, our male frog talked one of the females into laying eggs! This is highly unusual, especially since we don't have any grass or anything for them to cling to. He must be a real smooth croaker.

I can finally start my froggy quilt! I have enough fabric cut and I'm ready to starting piecing!

I had to buy 40 different prints and cut out 195 froggy prints and 18 solid green ones. I'll post pics as soon as I get the facing done.

Jumping Frog Contest Poses Conundrum
By DON THOMPSON, Associated Press Writer

ANGELS CAMP, Calif. - What to do with 2,000 slightly used frogs?

For years, organizers of the Calaveras County Fair and Frog Jumping Jubilee urged participants to carefully put the frogs back where they got them after the annual contest.

Last summer, they found out the practice is illegal in California.

It's not against the law to catch the bullfrogs that compete in the contest — but it's illegal to put them back, said Ed Pert, the California Department of Fish and Game's fisheries programs chief. Technically, violators could face a $5,000 fine and a year in jail.

The common but nonnative frogs could spread disease or alter ecosystems if they are captured and freed in new locations, Pert said. Since their introduction in 1896, the Eastern bullfrogs already have largely driven out California's native frogs.

Department officials are scrambling to come up with an alternative before next May's contest. They plan an internal brainstorming session next month, before they open the discussion to contest organizers, environmentalists and others.

"We don't want to go and bust these contest participants, because they're not trying to do anything horribly wrong — they're trying to do the right thing," Pert said. "We don't want to abolish the contest; we certainly understand the value of it."

Fairgrounds manager Warren "Buck" King worries the cleanest way to insure the frogs aren't reintroduced to the environment is to kill them after the contest.

That would likely kill the contest itself, said King.

The contest already faces periodic protests from animal rights groups, most recently one last spring led by a former Miss Calaveras County contestant who was a participant herself 14 years ago.

Contest organizers adopted a "frog welfare policy" in 1997, requiring humane capture, care and release of the frogs, and banning participants who knowingly violate the policy or otherwise abuse frogs. No drugs or probes may be used to spur any frog, King said.

Most participants bring their own contestants, but organizers catch about 300 frogs to rent during the contest. The rental frogs, and any others that appear injured, overheated or exhausted, are kept in a "Frog Condo" under the main stage.

Still, King said, the way to make a frog want to jump is to keep it in a container too small to allow jumping until the contest begins. And he said captured bullfrogs typically won't eat, so they must be force-fed hamburger meat.

But King said he is proud of the contest's low mortality rate, and neither he nor Pert wants to wind up euthanizing the frogs.

"I'm hoping there are more creative solutions than that," Pert said.

Why do we like frogs?? [23 Nov 2002|10:21am]

[ mood | thoughtful ]

At one time or another someone will ask me 'Why do you like frogs so much?' I really can't find an answer to this question.

Why -do- I love frogs?

Is it because they have such big appealing eyes? That they're so small and cute? That they're whimsical? That they're fascinating creatures? That they're not the run-of-the-mill collector itiems such as boring teddy bears and geese? That they come in so many colors?


All I know is that I adore them!

Frogs Forever!

A Phew Phun Phroggy Phacts! [04 Nov 2002|09:02pm]

[ mood | amused ]

Ask anyone how a frog goes and they'll say 'Ribbit' but actually only one species uses that famous term. Other species may sound like roaring bulls, barking hounds, a hammer hammering a board, a pig, a plunked banjo and even an angry squirrel! So how did this 'ribbit' thing come about?

Why, from Hollywood, of course!

A studio filming a night scene found it easy to simulate the nightlights but it needed the night sounds as well. They went out and recorded the nightlife around the coast of california and in doing so, captured the calls of the Pacific Tree frog. Yep, you guessed it! This frog -Does- go 'ribbit'! And it's the only one that does so but since people have watched movies with this same soundtrack over and over again, the sounds of the frogs going 'ribbit' have gone down in history.

How to say 'frog' in German? Froschk! In Tailand? Gup! Ancient Celtic? Puddock! Spanish? Sapo! Russian? Ligoshka!

Frogs use thier large eyes to help them swallow:)

Anyone want to add to this phact list?
