Bob, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bob
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Albino Ornate Horned Frog
Home: Beavercreek, Ohio, USA
   Bob is special because he's fat and he loves hopping around in a plastic hamster ball! I got Bob from the pet store I work at, after falling in love with his cute little self. My friend offered to buy him for me for a ride to the bank, so I used my gas and got a frog! He was then the size of a nickel and is now about four-five inches wide. He's not that difficult to care for, if you can handle watching him slurp down a mouse or two. He's not for the tenderhearted mouse lover. My frog Bob has a ten gallon terrarium, where he like to bathe in the heat of his lamp.

    Ornate Horned Frogs, or Pac-Man frogs, are known to be aggressive toward anything that moves, even their owners fingers, but he has never tried to bite me or anyone else. But you must keep them alone because they will eat each other. He gets very upset very easily. He recently had a room change and he sat in the corner and pouted for almost three days before he would eat. When I'm cleaning his tank, I put him in one of those plastic balls that are used for hamsters and he actually likes it! For the most part Bob is a loner and sleeps twenty hours of the day, but he has a special place in my heart!
