I'm too wiped out to type up a weekly report, and I did let on earlier in the week what was on our agenda, so I'm letting myself off easy this time.
Not to leave you walking away empty-handed, here's an updated photo of Cullen's aquatic frog, Dookie.
Stretched out, she is a bit longer than my hand, and you can see how plump her belly is. We probably feed her more than she should have, but it's so much fun to watch her pop up out of the water to take her food from our fingers or a little plastic spoon! Visitors are impressed that we've trained her so well, but she is actually just very determined and assertive when it comes to eating! She has her priorities perfectly straight.
Dookie came to us two years ago as a tadpole from Grow-a-Frog. The company tells us that these frogs can live more than 7 or 8 years!
I just hope she doesn't grow any bigger.
