I agreed to adopt this frog even though I have never liked frogs because my daughter begged me to adopt her preschool pet when the school year ended. Taking care of Fatso was very much like taking care of a fish, we put it in a fish tank with water; however they do not need as much maintenance because they like muddy waters. We called it Fatso because it loved to eat and it was always swimming fast and bumping into the tank's wall making noises. One time it went down the bathtub drain, while my son was cleaning the tank, and we panicked thinking we lost it forever. We decided to call the maintenance guy in our building and he was able to sucked it back up with a professional vacuum, surprisingly the frog survived this odyssey. Fatso lived a long happy life and it was fun watching him swim so fast.
