Acquired: Pet store

These tiny, funny-looking, webbed-feet creatures are a delight! The perfect first personal pet for a small child: about 1-2 inches long and maybe 1 inch wide, their expressive nature is sure to make you smile when watching them try to bob up and catch a piece of food or float in mid 'air' at spread-eagle position for no apparent reason whatsoever.Cost is not a problem - they frequently are sold in pairs, with a 4x4x6 ecosystem and a 2-year supply of food for about $30. Interestingly enough, they are also popular pets for adults to take to the workplace, as they are sometimes considered to be 'good company'.And you only feed them twice a week! A few things to keep in mind: they can have a competitive nature - keep an eye on whether or not they stay the same size or grow - if one grows and the other doesn't, this may be a sign that the larger one is out-competing the smaller one for food. And know, too, that although these lackadaisical frogs are, well, lackadaisical when in their ecosystems, they turn into little speedy Gonzalese's if they escape while you are cleaning their home.Be very careful when transferring them from a net to a tall glass of water.
