is Buddha. He is an Asian Narrow Mouth Frog. Buddha was bought by a
co-worker who didn't know anything about frogs and he eventually needed
a new home. He was given to me because I have kept frogs before and
offered to help. The best thing about Buddha is his singing (croaking).
He loves to serenade the household when it is raining outside. He
frightens us if the house is dark and he sings all of a sudden. He will
often answer me when I laugh too. His tank could never be kept in the
bedroom, or we would never get any sleep. Frogs do not make the best
pets because you cannot play with them. Frog skin is permeable, meaning
they soak up whatever touches them. Dirty hands and dirty water can make
them sick! They will only eat live food and many people have a problem
with feeding live food. I do not recommend frogs for pets for most
people, but I still love my Buddha.
