Are you sure she got out of the tank? They're pretty tricky hiders. I thought I had lost one of my males, but he had found the smallest pocket to hide in, and I had to tear apart the tank to find him. If you've already done that... then I'm sorry :(

That's horribly depressing, I'm so sorry :( If you get another frog, remember to keep them in a tank that has a lid on it - one that can be closed securely. I've never had a frog get out, but I can imagine how you feel and I wouldn't want that to happen again!

So very sad and I am so very sorry popcorndeer...Hugs ! Yes I would agree since these little guys can jump I would really get a lid on any tank you keep them in.

You may never know popcorndeer how she got out, animals can be very tricky like that and its always so very sad when things like this happen. Best we can do sometimes is give them the most proper care we can and love them while they are with us and keep them in our hearts when they are gone.

I'm sorry. . . I *guess* it's good that you know for sure what happened. . . :(

We never did figure out if she was sick. . . there are some illnesses that can cause a frog to really TRY to get out of the water. I'd think you'd have noticed other symptoms if this was the case, but. . . you're new to frogs, right? It can be really difficult to know what to look for when you're still getting used to what 'normal' is to these guys. . .

If you decide to get another frog, be sure to look at the frogs in the tank very closely before deciding to bring one home, judge their health, ask questions - figure out what they've been feeding them at the shop, so you know what they're used to. Don't purchase any frog from a tank in which you see any evidence of sickness or death, and NEVER attempt to ‘rescue’ a sick frog. . .frogs are usually pretty tough little guys, as Watty said. *usually* illnesses are brought about by poor water quality, so if you haven't been, it's a good idea to keep an eye on those parameters.

Good luck, Popcorn. If you get a new baby, be sure to stop in and let us know!

I'm so sorry, again, to hear of your losses. :(
