We catch a lot of ugly beasts on The Reptile Show, most of them are dangerous, scaly and come equipped with teeth, claws and razor sharp jaws. But every once in a while we catch something cute...a little slimy...but in our books 10 buttons of cuteness.
Today in a puddle behind the office I captured and relocated 4 Baby Bull Frogs. Fresh off their time as tadpoles these little hoppers were all sharing a puddle with about a gallons worth of water in it.
A dangerous little scenario for these young amphibians because little did they realize...their current abode was right in the pathway of landscaper destruction. As a matter of fact, the puddle they called home sweet home was nothing more then a depression from a large lawnmower.
Being the lover of critters that I am...it was with out question that these green micro frogs be relocated to a larger retention pond that is in the office complex. They were very happy to be let go in a new setting and will hopefully thrive and grow up to become monster sized Bull Frogs. As Kermit always said..."it ain't easy bein' green!"
