I would never admit I have a frog for a pet but this frog has adopted me. I didn't really realize it was the same frog until recently. He is very discrete, hiding in the day. IF this is the same frog, he has gotten REALLY FAT! Since I have discovered him, he has made himself right at home. I left the door open and he just came right on inside. The dogs don't bother him. This is surprising since my dogs terrorize any moving thing inside their property. Frogs are dangerous (read deadly) here. They have this milky-white poison they secrete from the back of their neck.
The dogs don't always eat all their food so 'Froggy' has had a steady, regular meal. Lately, I have chipped up the liver treats I make for the dogs and added it to their dry food. They have been eating ALL OF IT and Froggy has been kicking around the metal bowls LOUDLY as if telling me - Hey, Where's MY DINNER? I'm at odds as to whether to now feed him too? I really don't want to encourage him to stay. It was just recently that I realized he was getting into the dogs food bowls and had made a home of my lanai.
He has now let his buddy come in to join him. This area where he now lives has a partition at the bottom of the bars to keep frogs OUT! His routine is to wait for the dogs to finish eating and I bring the dogs inside. He then jumps in their food bowl, eats and then moves on to the water dish to sleep. His own private frog pond.
This photo gives you an idea just how BIG this fellow really is.
What would you do? I've tried putting him outside the fence by the river but he comes back.
This is home to him.
