    Default Missing WTF, Im having a hell of a start to keeping frogs.

    I bought a WTF today. A big beautiful active frog who wanted out. The container was cracked and I didnt know this till I checked on him halfway home and he was gone. I have gutted my car...looked everywhere but he could be anywhere tucked up into the seats or front or anywhere. IDK what to do. I guess I should give up. The windows were open, he could of gotten out. Its going to get hot in the car tomorrow and I just dont want him tto die like that. I was so in love with this frog!

    I would try putting a wet/damp towel, or paper towels on the floor areas of your car, this may attract it, just an idea. It's probably under a seat or in some nook of the car. I hope you find it!

    Awe, I'm so sorry this happened to you. I know it sounds weird but what if you put some bowls of dechlorinated water in bowls on the floor of your car. If the frog is still in your car maybe he will go to the water.

    On mini990701's advice I put a bowl of crickets and a bowl of spring water in my car. I will try the damp towel as well. This was a crazy active frog so he could have gottten anywhere.I really hope I find him before it gets hot in my car tomorrow. I will let you all know what happens!

    Well no crickets were eaten in my car last night but there is a tiny tiny amount of dirt in the water bowl...hmmmm...I dont see im anywhere but theres so may paces he can be. The car is going to get hot today but if I leave windows down then hes out in the wilderness. What should I do...are they nocturnal? I cant remember?

    Try putting in a tank with a water bowl/water, crickets in another bowl and some paper towels as flooring. Add a nice clean branch with some clean leaves. Basically make a mini tank for him and leave it open in the car. If he's in there, he'll find it. Watch for him every day. Be sure to let a little air in each day if it is hot out, but watch carefully because they can jump fast and out he could go.

    If it is hot out put just slightly cool water in the bowl, but not cold. Mist the tank with the water too. His survival instincts should kick in and he should look for the water.

    Yes, they are nocturnal.

    Good luck in your search. If he's in there he will find the home and perch on the branches. Perhaps put the tank up on the seat. They like to climb.

    I'm so glad I went shopping late tonight. Almost sat on him. He was sitting right on my seat and boy does he move fast.

    It probably thought the car was it's new home, nice large enclosure, water bowls, food, nice car seats to sit on, radio, etc.
