Acquired: Pet store

I had always been obsessed with frogs. And I still love them. Unfortunately, Frogger was in this world for only a mere 6 months or so. S/he was purchased from Petsmart, and was put in our fish tank where we already had tropical freshwater fish.
Frogger was not very social at all, and mostly hid or sat at the bottom of the tank. Frogger ate bloodworm cubes that we had to press on the side of the tank. Frogger was very cute looking, but other than that didn't really do anything. We never really held Frogger or interacted with it because it was pretty clear it wanted nothing to do with us.
If I had had Frogger for longer than 6 months, maybe my feelings would be different. Unfortunately, Frogger disappeared after 6 months and we still don't know what happened to it. Maybe it was eaten by some of the fish?
On the plus side, these frogs are very very cute. On the minus side, they are not very active or social, and you can't really interact with them other than to feed them. And they usually don't come up to eat the food right away, but wait until you've left the tank to feed. And I suppose you should be careful with what types of fish you put your frog with, because there is a chance Frogger was eaten by one of our fish.
I would only get another one of these frogs if I had a smaller tank where it would be the only animal inside. If you want a pet that interacts with you more, perhaps consider a larger frog or a toad. This one seemed a little too skittish to be interactive.
