Frogs are my life. Spadefoots are my specialty, but I am passionate about all amphibians. I got my BA in Environmental Studies, and I am in the process of going back to school to get my MS in Coastal and Watershed Science so I can help in habitat restoration projects for local endangered frogs. I have several frogs as pets, and have had many in the past as well.
herpetology, karaoke, writing, jewelry making, video games, nature, swimming

When I placed my order for The Impostor's ladies, I also requested a couple male spadefoots as well. I thought it would be important for his colony to have a good male-female ratio. I ordered both Plains Spadefoots and New Mexico Spadefoots. When my shipment arrived, it was like Christmas morning. I am sure all of you can relate to that feeling, when the FedEx box shows up filled with amphibians. It just might have been the happiest day of the year for me! As I opened the box, I made sure to examine

Different personalities

by lindsayshocking on August 23rd, 2014 at 10:39 PM
I've come to realize that spadefoots all have very distinct personalities. I was reminded of this when dealing with the new colony. One of the female Plains spadefoots had not been acclimating well. She wouldn't eat, and was always burrowed. I know that moving to a new home can be a very difficult thing, so I try to leave them alone as much as possible when I get new toads. However, one day when checking on them I found her semi-burrowed next to the water dish, and she looked like a dead dried frog

Hi, my name is Lindsay, and I am a spadefootaholic.

I am sure you've probably figured that much out about me if you've ever as much as looked at my profile picture or looking at anything I ever posted. In the real world, I happily discuss them all the time. I am working on getting into grad school so I can work with spadefoots, and of COURSE my thesis project will be on spadefoots. My undergrad thesis was on spadefoots. It's one of the first things I ever mention, and I even have gone

Tales From the Water Bowl

by lindsayshocking on September 11th, 2013 at 08:10 PM

I'm sorry about the quality of this photo. Getting a picture of Snodgrass and Aspartame together was quite a feat. Although, as you read on, you might understand why this was so difficult.

In obtaining The Colony, I didn't know anything about the spadefoots I was getting. I didn't know much about their personality. Spadefoots are full of personality, which can be generalized somewhat by the species. Couch's Spadefoots are big large lazy toads.

As I was getting ready to give The Colony new water and food, I saw this in the water dish and had to take a picture:

There is so much wrong with this picture, that I don't even know where to start.

As far as the "chain" goes, this isn't the first time this has happened. My toads seem to enjoy amplexus in threes. Worse yet, the middle toad is Precious, who is female (she is full of eggs) and the one in front is Snodgrass,
