About Us
Gizmo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Gizmo
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Male
Kind: White's Dumpy Tree Frog
Home: Louisburg, Kansas, USA
   Gizmo is the best frog imaginable. Look how cute he is posing on my pink rose! I've always loved frogs, and this past Christmas, Gizmo came into my life. (Thanks Mom!) He has made dormitory-life much more bearable, as he is my constant companion, and loves to climb on my keyboard. His favorite hobbies are eating crickets and sleeping in his coconut house. Although, he also really enjoys climbing in his tree and rustling the leaves at 3 AM in order to wake me up. As I travel between my real home (Louisburg, Kansas) and my dormitory at Washington University in St. Louis, Gizmo rides in his traveling case on the heated-seat next to me. (Yes, he's that spoiled!!!) And because White's Tree Frogs live, on average, to be ten years old, Gizmo and I plan to do a lot of world traveling and look forward to many fun life-experiences together.
