Tiny, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tiny
Age: Six months old
Gender: Unknown
Kind: African Bullfrog (Pyxicephalus adspersus)
Home: Houston, Texas, USA
   Tiny is maybe my favorite of the ten or so frogs I keep. He is small right now (at least by Pyxie frog standards) at only 4 inches out of his potential of 9 inches if he is a male. He is the most voracious of any frog I have ever kept, feeding on mice, fish, crickets, earthworms, and anything else that happens to fall into his cage every week! His favorite repast seems to be my fingers, which are a delicacy limited to when I try to change his bedding. While you are watching him, he is probably thinking, "I wonder if that will fit in my mouth?"
