Main Question or Discussion Point

Thought you guys might like to see a pic of my son's new roommate. He's a green frog, Rana clamitans, but this one is curiously blue-grey, a rare, but previously-observed color morph. His name is Sam and he loves his crickets. I have included a shot of a "regular" green frog for comparison.

Just how cute can a frog be? What a great little friend to have. It looks like a precious gem.

:confused: To small, not even a good mouthful.

I get the sense that you will eat anything.

No; not slime molds.

This one looks like it has the temperment of a shark.

Believe it or not, those plasmodiums don't taste much difference from green jello! :tongue:

Yes, he was one of twenty frogs that we collected in the window wells around our apartment one day. We released the others, but kept Sam. He now lives with Thomas, my newt, in a half-water, half-land terrarium.

Ahh, Dendrobates azureus, a fine species and very nice color, but not generally found in Upstate NY.

I love frogs. My pond attracts themin great numbers, and they breed every year.
Took a photo of one hiding in a tube a while back:
