    WOW! Really neat, their colors are amazing. I don't keep frogs any longer, but when I was a kid, I rode my pony down to the river, collected a bunch of tadpoles and grew them out in a water hole. It was awesome. They were leopard frogs. They could recognize certain people too, they wouldn't jump in the water if I approached, but with other people they hopped right in for cover!

    Really cool frogs. They wouldn't last long around here. My ducks and chickens love toads and frogs! [​IMG] We do have a snake, gecko, skink and a tortoise though.
    Pic my kids took in our yard. Maybe I should leave out the pic of the duck with the toad. Alot of people on facebook took offense when I posted that one.

    Those are really amazing frogs !! I love toads and frogs. I don't "keep" frogs or toads, but we have a lot that live around our place. The toad in the pics below has lived pretty much on our front porch for at least 3 years (it might be 4 years now, but I can't remember). I have toad houses made from clay flowerpots all in my flower beds. Mr. Toad, my porch toad, has a flower pot on the porch filled with leaves, and a bowl of water right outside. He uses his water bowl as a swimming pool most days.

    Awesome frog pictures! I would love to have a planted aquarium some day with some poison dart frogs. We have a bunch of very colorful ones in the animal lab at college. Someday I'll own my own place where I can have whatever pets I want! until then I am at my college campus's mercy.

    I love frogs and toads! Thank you for sharing!

    I've always wanted to set up a tank with some nice darts, or a trio of red eyes, but have never had the chance. Maybe someday!

    Wow your frogs are awesome!

    Just recently I have considered getting a frog or two. I think eventually I'd like a red eye tree frog and/or a waxy monkey tree frog.

    Just amazing creatures!
