    Default My new poopers! :)

    I got these guys from an Elementary school teacher. She had to take them out of her class room, after having the for a year and was going to let them go in the wild if no one would take them....so here they are with me in a better home!

    I am so glad that you saved them.
    releasing them at any time would be a bad idea.

    I am guessing that they are both female or juvenile males since that don't have the
    pink glands at their arm pits.
    I now have 7 in my 46G bow front and they are being fed very well now.
    when I got them they were really skinny.
    They are really lucky to have such a good keeper now.

    That is crazy! They did the same thing. They were feeding then goldfish flakes too. They had 3 but one died before it got to me , and in a little plastic bin with a few blue pebbles! I don't get it, why do they have to do this to animals no matter how small. And they are teaching kids the wrong way of taking care of an animal. Fish food for frogs, OK....

    Yeah these poor little things, living off of what ever info walmart gave them when they picked em up.

    Based on what I was told the frog I'm picking up is several years old about a 5" female albino ACF with a deformed spine(I'm assuming this is from the gold fish flake diet) as for housing I believe she has a 10 gal with a heater and filter but has little gravel along the bottom.
    After I get her home I gotta get rid of the pebbles and then im gonna fatten her up with some nightcrawlers. I'll probably start a new thread with some pics once I get her home and set up.

    Not all "fish food" is bad and not all frog/turtle/newt food is good. Read your labels.

    The deformed spine is almost always a sign of poor nutrition when the frog did not morph that way. I would not be surprised if she was feed lots of goldfish as well.
