I'm so sorry!! He did jump.
Bettas can't eat frogs, that's common sense. Lol

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I think ChoclateBetta might have been asking if it could have been eaten by a household pet like a cat. I could be wrong, thats just what I took from it.

I'm so sorry about your frog.

THIS IS IMPORTANT!!:
If you buy abused bettas from stores to help them, please read the following.
If the store made profit, then it was NOT a rescue. I know you're only trying to help, but you're hurting the cause. If you care, please click the link below and learn the truth.
Please use the same, or a similar signature to support the cause!
Here is a good example of what you could do instead: http://www.bettafish.com/129-betta-chat/110770-he-will-have-die-here.html

Maybe... Or even mice if they're desperate. I'm guessing too.

Awww....
Poor thing!
Yesterday my mom was in the exercise room where one of my cats stays when we swap cats (they fight so one gets locked up every other day) and Pumpkin was meowing incessantly.... My mom looked at the food and water dishes on the windowsill (5 feet high) to see if they were empty.
Lo and behold.
A large bullfrog was in the water dish.
HOW he got there nobody knows. To get a frog into that room he'd have to hop through a heck of a lot of furniture that's stored in the garage, then jump high up to the windowsill and find the water.....the window is at ground level (the 1st floor is halfway underground on one side) and we only open the window with the screen.
Very bizarre.
Another time I had a pet 1 inch long American Toad for 2 weeks....one night I left her tank open on the ground and I found her the next day under the china cabinet, looking very smug with her front feet tucked in neatly.
I feel so bad because she had to go without water for a while (looks like the dog's water dish wasn't touched) and she had NO food!
I'm glad my kitty didn't eat her.


Sorry about your little froggie, too. I love Clawed frogs and their personalities! It's just a shame that yours got out :( :( :(

7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats


Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail

When I first got the frog I actually had him in Junior's 5 gal with him since I read they can be housed together. But Junior just kept nipping at the poor little guy and I was afraid he could seriously harm him, so I moved the frog into a temporary 1 gallon tank so he could be safe from Junior. That's when he disappeared :(

Thank you all for your sympathy!

I do have two dogs but they wouldn't have been able to get into the tank... but if the frog was loose...

I know Bettas may ATTACK frogs, but they certainly can't eat them. I just can't believe it... You still couldn't find it? :\ Where could it be...

we had that happen with a neon tetra earlier this year. we were cleaning the tank, and he was just GONE. the only openings he could have jumped through were the food hole and the opening for the filter, but he was nowhere on the bookshelf his tank was on, or on the carpeting around it. i'm still convinced that he jumped somehow, and my fiance's cat ate him.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
