Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization

I had the privilege of becoming in involved with the raid of a really (I mean, really) bad pet store and with the fostering of quite a number of the animals rescued (snakes, turtles, an iguana, and these two frogs, whom I've just come to love). I put them in the same enclosure as the iguana, since both species need the same heat and humidity yet neither gets in the other's way, considering iguanas are active during the day and the tree frogs at night (which is why I listed their "Visibility" as a 2--you really have to squint to see them [they don't like flashlights], but it's worth the effort to witness their perching and, especially, jumping behavior). They chow down on gut-loaded crickets and might (I've never witnessed it, but it might happen) eat some of the iguana's prepared food. There's just something really fascinating about these simple creatures--their shape, their huge eyes, their amazing feet and legs. I don't know. I just know they've been a fascinating addition around here.
