I used to catch frogs in the pond down the street when I was younger. Once I caught one hopping kind of aimlessly and when I snatched him up, I noticed the poor thing only had one eye. I brought him home with me and put him the terrarium with the frogs I already had (some jade tree frogs I bought from a specialty pet store) and they got along just fine. Things went great for weeks. One-Eyed Jack was adjusting nicely and my other frogs didn't even really seem to notice the addition. And them I caught another one. I named her Annie and I brought her home to join the others. Things seemed fine at first but two days later I woke up and found the skeleton of my littlest frog in the corner of the terrarium. I was so confused, I didn't know how it happened, but a few days later, my other jade tree frog was in the same condition and Annie was a lot bigger. I was grieving and I feared for One-Eyed Jack's safety so I let Jack and Annie both go in different locations.
They were plain, but pretty with a brown-green body and black stripes. They were both about an inch and a half long, but Annie was a little bigger of course... They weren't hard to take care of and Jack was a wonderful pet, but I wouldn't suggest having more than one at a time.
