About 9 months ago we had a pair of green tree frogs mating then spawning in our back yard puddles.

I scoped up as much of the spawn and put it in a makeshift terrarium/pond in amongst our palm trees.

9 months on the mistake was realized as we now have about 13 or so croaking male frogs singing for the one or two females each time it rains. Wouldn’t be so bad ’cept we live on a 600sq mt block of land.

We now have a second generation of tadpoles growing in the terrarium/pond so in 9 months time it’s going to be interesting around here.

    I’d kiss him anytime. He’s better looking than the toads around here.
