Frogs & Snails

So I finally got some new frogs and, being a delinquent frog mom, I haven’t even blogged about it! I just had to look back through my credit card statement to find out when I bought them – turns out it was April 30!

I bought five frogs – though sadly one of them was found floating in the tank a couple of days ago. Here’s a photo of the fraggle of frogs from July 5, before the tragedy:

Frogs!

We have struggled to come up with names for them, but have come up with 3 names so far:

  • Copernicus the Fourth1
  • Arya2
  • Webster3 

We still need a fourth name – and we are taking suggestions, so let me know if you have a good frog name idea.

In addition to frogs, we also got some snails because snails eat algae and the frog tank often fills up with algae. And they do a really good job of it. Here you can see a snail trail where the snail travelled along the top of the tank, eating up all the algae:

And here’s another cool photo – I think this snail is growing a new shell (the wider stripes) to replace its older shell (the smaller stripes):

This snail is growing a new shell under its old shell - you can see that it's a different pattern

For some reason, the snail names came easier than frog names:

  • Turbo
  • Whiplash
  • Tyrion Snailister (the littlest of the 3 snails – obviously)

So there you have it – frogs and snails, living in harmony!

  2. We came up with this one from having recently watched the Battle of Winterfell. []
  3. This one was named by my friend Patricia, who will inherit the frogs and their accoutrement, in the event of my death. []
