Yesterday my sister and I were Standing near Darwin's big cage. Darwin is a white's Austrailan blue color phase tree frog. It is hot and humid here. Will we heard a barking of what sounded like a little Taco Bell dog two times. We were shaking our heads as a dog that size couldn't get in our patio. A third barkd of the sassy Taco Bell dog happened. We turned our heads and Cathy my sister said it was Darwin my frog barking. We both laughed as he was reminding me to mist his cage.

If you want to scan them and email/PM them to me, I can post them for you. (or help you to post them, either way. :) )

I've had aquarium frogs as pets (Prince Charming I, II, & III). They were pretty neat lil' guys. I bet Darwin is stunning in his light blue evening suit! :)

Really, we must see the wonder "barking" frog. :D .
Frogs are so beautiful :p .
Now that Magda is going to a bigger cage, do you thing I could use the terrarium, the ones made of glass with sleeding doors, to keep frogs in ?

Sandy, are you talking to me? :)
No, I don't have frogs, Magda is my iggy, that growns like crazy and is moving to a new big cage.
Many years ago I used to have a so caalled "reineta" (little queen) that I took from a friend pond, but it wasn't happy at all and I returned it to the pond.(long storie).
What I was asking you if I can use the iggy's terrarium to keep some frogs with whatever is needed in.

It seems that the scientific name is HYLA MERIDIONALIS , if you tape this name on the google search engine you can see more pictures of them.

Yes the picture of the White's Austrailian Tree Frog is what Darwin looks like. Darwin loves to climb up my arm. He has
a 3 foot high by3 foot wide cage with lots of silk plants and a pond to boot. Duringv this hot wheather the heat lamp is off.
