Actually after looking REALLY carefully at some frog identification sites, ... someday I'll build the poor thing an outdoor summer pond.

Pics are at: http://www.fr0glet.org/pix/pets/frogs/Rana/page 01.htm Any commentary on what she really is would be appreciated. Some of the pics show ... built to put her cage on, and my cool cube-like cage that I'll putting my Indian Ornamental in. :) fr0glet

Ah, what a cool frog! You lucky dog.
Its tank is nice. I did the silicone land/water bit in a 50-gal once for a pair of garter snakes, worked great. That platform is a great idea!

As long as her toe does not extend from the webbing, it is more than likely a pig frog. If the webbing extends beyond, then you have a bull frog on your hands. Also look for ventral mottling. Bull frogs will not have the dark mottling on their undersides at all, pig frogs will have mottling on their hind legs River frogs will have mottling on their entire undersides, all the way to their lips. You don't have a river frog, but my point is, sometimes, between our local four frogs (bull, pig, river and carpenter) that are very similar...looking at the belly is about the only way you can tell in some cases.

Looking at the photos, it really does look like a pig frog. Oh. btw, you might notice a musky smell coming from her when she gets excited (wow, I should have worded that differently). It's quite normal as you probabaly know by now. Have fun with your spastic frog!!!
No, I'm not into taking pets out of the wild. All animals in Washington state are protected against collection, regardless if they're a pest.

Bullfrogs, however, are considered an exotic pest species in Washington, and can be taken without limit by any means available.

I've also done my time armpit deep in pond water trying to erdicate the ravenous nuisances. Warry little buggers, that's for sure.

I've taken eggs from the river locally, with fish & wildlife present (they were surveying the area) and they didn't care. All they wanted was to make sure I had a fishing license-that was it.

mottling, too.

Yes I know, hence my comments above.

It's hard to say! I can see the skin of the 3rd toe definately connects to the tip of the skin of the 4th toe, but I haven't seen it extended taut to view the webbing all the way out there.

Yeap that she has. Last night I spent hours looking at pig frog pictures, sure does look like a match.

Yeah, she and I both! Emotion: wink
I didn't smell a thing from her last night during the manic escapade, but then again she'd been in a small stressful clear plastic box for several hours at that point.
Have fun with your spastic frog!!!

Thanks! She was quite the eager cricket-eater today... love that sticky tongue action!
