    I think I answered you about the sex of your frog. It was a male frog from the information you gave me.

    I’ve put my frog on a diet, she’s looking a little chubby lately!

    She looks fine but maybe only from this angle. In any case I'm glad she's well.

    Me too! I took the rocks out of her water dish. So hard to clean and they seemed to bother her.

    She's doing great! She's eating well and there aren't any more eggs in her poop. I put the tank back in the original setup except for some rock in the water dish. Got new crickets and waxworms as well.

    Yeah, the bullfrog is still super skinny though. I don't know what's going on with him, I've been having to force feed him but he does swallow 2/3 waxworms a day. Could he have a parasite possibly? I was gonna let him go but I want to make sure he's healthy. I'll post pictures as soon as he'll sit still lol.

    It's possible, though plenty of things can stop a frog from eating. If you think a parasite is likely, you can apparently buy Panacur-C for dogs and coat the feeders in it as described in this thread. I have never tried this method myself and I'm not sure of the effect it can have on a wild caught animal, but I wanted to hand over the information in case you might want to consider that route.

    Okay.

    Yall know about my three legged frog of course. (By the way, she’s doing great and her name is now Alphais!)

    So today I was going about my business, checking the pool filters and I saw a big frog in there.
    So naturally I reach down and grab her. Pulling this massive, enraged froggo outta the pool was an effort lol!

    And when I get a closer look at her...

    So now i guess I’m stuck with this guy too XD
    I’m sitting here laughing at my crazy luck.. Oh man haha at least I don’t have any other pets!

    Don’t worry, I’m quarantining her and all that before I introduce her to Alli. It’ll be like looking in a mirror lol

    So that’s my situation right now, got a new froggo i guess :P

    Glad to see folk rescuing these little ones! I rescued Lydia as well, tho in a different way. (She was being swept away in flash flooding during a mighty storm we had and I scooped her up when I saw a little tiny creature struggling to escape the currents. She decided she wanted to stay with us.

    Awesome! I named the new frog Henry but unfortunately i didn't have him for long. He started having seizures so i took him to the wildlife rehab center. Al has started to have swelling in her stump and theres a clear bubble of skin on the same leg, any ideas on what this could be? Poor froggy!! She doesn't have any external injuries.

    Hey! How would you suggest ‘numbing him up?’ I have a bullfrog in the exact same situation, on the same leg in fact. I’m kind of panicking, my mom wants me to humanely euthanize him, but I feel responsible and I need to help him (I was walking my dog and stepped on his back leg). Please, if you could, help!!

    Aw poor lil boi, I know how you feel. Will you post pictures of him if possible? I suggest placing him in a paper towel lined container in the fridge for a bit, making sure to check on him every five minutes or so, and amputate when he's sleepy enough not to struggle too much but still conscious. In my situation, the frog didn't go to sleep in the fridge so I put her in the freezer but if you do this make sure it's for a very short amount of time. When you're ready to amputate, use gloves and sterilize everything with rubbing alcohol or similar. I used wire cutters for the bone and scissors for the rest... gross I know. Then I used styptic powder found at pet stores to stop the bleeding, this is very important as there are a lot of big veins and such in the leg. Sorry for the late reply and good luck, if you have more questions just ask!

    P.S. you'll most likely have to force feed him for a while. I did.

    Thank you so much! I actually misidentified the frog in my panic, it’s a female Northern Green Frog (I’ve named her Aomaris). I asked around at some vets nearby and no one would help, so I decided to let her sit for a few days. This morning I checked and she actually has feeling in the broken foot. I’m at school right now, but I’m about an hour and a half I can get some pictures up. I’m keeping her in a small area of a Kritter Keeper with paper towels on the bottom right now. I’m going to get crickets and feeding tongs over the weekend- do you think I need anything else? After she heals I’ll probably upgrade her to a 10 or 20 gal long.

    You’re probably going to need some sort of vitamin supplement for her, I’d also suggest getting mealworms/wax worms as treats. Sounds like you’re doing a great job so far tho! I’m glad she’s still alive. About how big is she?
