GUESS WHAT!!!? GUESS WHAT!!!? GUESS WHAT I GOT TO SEE TODAY!!!!???
MY FROGS - MATING!!!
. . .
I kind of felt bad watching them, but they didn't seem to mind one bit!
I am SO excited to have witnessed this. . . I just think these little frogs are so NEAT
to have around. I was hoping they'd pair up eventually, and have been listening for him to start calling to her. I never did, but I know what I saw and I saw. . .um. . . STUFF!
I was a little bit worried about Specks, cuz' she's been getting a bit chubby. Being female and older, she's already bigger than Freckles is, so I was nervous about feeding HER too much while HE wasn't getting enough. Guess she was just full of roe! Very, very cool stuff. . .
I'm not going to do anything to try to save the eggs, right now I have my hands too full of fish-related nonsense to really get into this with them. However, if they continue to pair up in the future, I'll do some investigation into setting up a tank with the specific idea of rearing taddies to frogs from eggs in mind. I've read that it can be very tricky, but I'd love to try growing a frog from scratch in my house, lol!
Anyway... just HAD to let you guys know! Love is in the air over here in the five gallon, and I am SO excited!!!
