    Default EMERGENCY! Accidentally stepped on new pet glass frog

    I purchased two glass frogs today of an unknown species at the Midwest reptile show. I was transferring them to their new set up and decided to take pictures of them on my hand real quick and one of them jumped. I looked but my room was dark so I couldnít see them, and I gently moved my foot but felt something squishy and was horrified when I realized that it was the frog. The organs in the chest area seem to be okay, but what I believe are the intestines and reproductive organs have been pushed out fo the cloaca. The frog isnít moving or responding to any stimuli, but itís heart is still beating very slow. I donít know what I should do. Iíd take it to a vet, but what can they do for a frog this small? I donít think any emergency exotic vets are even open right now. Iíll try to include pictures. I put it in a water and honey solution like you would for an anal prolapse, and I put it on top of a heat pad. From what I can see itís not breathing either but itís hard to tell with such a small animal.

    Wouldn’t let me upload the photos onto this thread so I made a photo album on my page. Please take a look!

    It’s heart has stopped beating, and it has passed away. If anyone could ID the species so I could properly take care of the remaining frog? I believe it’s a Fleischmann’s glass frog but I want to double check. I’ll post pictures of the other one tomorrow for IDing....
