While cleaning the downstairs bathroom, Om found this little one!
It's a gray tree frog. Yes, I know it's green, but they vary in color. Notice the edges of her legs are yellow. They are bright yellow on the underside. She's tiny. Her (she has a white chin) body is only about an inch long.
There were lots of spiders for her to eat in the bathroom, but Om finished most of them off and drowned the room in Lysol. Not a very healthy place for a little frog now. I'll keep her a few days. They can tolerate very cold temperatures, but I wonder if she'd be OK with going directly from 70 degrees to 40 with no transition. I don't think keeping her over the winter is a good option because I'd have to buy crickets or something to feed her. They want to eat every day.
But, temporarily, she's got a woodsy home in the kitchen in a tub filled with dirt, moss, a block to hide under and a branch to climb. I managed to catch a couple of fruit flies and get them in there too.
At first, she hid under the piece of block, but now, she's out in the lawn. You can see her little behind through the plastic. I wonder what a little froggie thinks.
In other news: I worked on Accidentally Yours almost all day.
