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:
We have struggled to come up with names for them, but have come up with 3 names so far:
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):
For some reason, the snail names came easier than frog names:
- Tyrion Snailister (the littlest of the 3 snails – obviously)
So there you have it – frogs and snails, living in harmony!
