finally, after a nearly year-long search, i found a budgett's frog. his name is Mushmellon and he's quite kind.

He is AWESOME!! I love his name, too! :D

I'm curious, why it took nearly a year to find him... are they rare in the hobby? or just hard to come by healthy, etc. ?



*adds to list* :)


edit:

"This frog is also known as the "Freddy Kruger" frog, because when frightened, it will open it's disproportionately large mouth and emit a shrill, fearsome scream. It has even been known to bite when cornered by a human or predator."

This made me laugh!

they are pretty rare in the trade. they're semi-aquatic and need a good bit of water to swim in. i'll try to get some pics of my setup sometime here.

Such a wonderful fatbody. I almost bought one of those cheeky bastards but went for some T's instead. My pyxie eats up most of my budget...no pun intended. Hiii-ooooo.

I picked up one of these this weekend myself. Odd looking little fellows.
