So apparently I have more than one type of frog hopping around my backyard. Months and months ago, I recall seeing what I first thought was a bug, hop in front of me. It must not have been a 1/3 of an inch in size, and much too small to be a frog I thought.
About two months ago, I caught what I suspected to be it, but much larger in size. It was no bigger than the size of a typical PDF new froglet, and I let it go because I wasn't sure if it would be suitable to keep with my soon to be PDFs. More recently I've been seeing more of them hoping around at night (ranging in size from 3/4" and up).
Today, as I was about to open my tool shed I saw what I thought was a smudge of dirt. I thought, wow, that's funny -- it looks just like a little frog. Upon closer inspection, I had to clear my vision -- it WAS a frog! I hurried to grab a little hexagon fish tank (with a lid) and carefully nudged it inside. I took a few pictures, but this is probably the only worthwhile one looking at:
You really have to click on the full size version to see just how small this guy is. Considering how few species of frogs we have on the island, and a simple image search, I was able to find out this is a "greenhouse frog". Does anyone know anything about this species, or know what to feed it? I put a few fruit flies in the hexagon tank it's sitting in, but they look a bit big, haha.
I know it's not advised to put two species of dart frogs together, but how would this guy fair with my three D.Auratus froglets? If it's still ill-advised, that's okay -- I have a small 2 gallon tank I can outfit it in momentarily.
