I had a good weekend!

 

HOWDY FAITHFUL READERS, 

This weekend was a lot of fun.  On Saturday I took my girlfriend to MIZZOU to show her my old stomping grounds.  I don't think I could have picked a hotter day of the year to goose march her around Downtown Columbia Missouri.  On Sunday I attended a local Reptile Show and picked up a baby Solomon Island Eyelash Frog.  I named him "Santa".  His relative is pictured here. 

 

Santa is a pale translucent white, you can see some of his internal organs thru his skin.  I have him in a temporary plastic Vivarium untill I can fatten him up some, then he is going in with Mr. and Mrs. Walenda.  I decided to do an "Asian" Vivarium (Malaysia and the Solomon Islands).  The other Vivarium (to be purchased at a latter date), will be my "Madagascar" Vivarium.  My frog family continues to grow...

Mustard is a greedy little piggie...

My little Tomato Frog 'Mustard' is eating pinkie mice already.  The other day I dropped one in front of his little coconut hut and he struck at it so fast it scared me and I yelped.  Today I put two in front of him and he ate them both.  He used his front legs to stuff the last pinkie down his throat.  Two pinkies are almost too big for his stomach.  The good thing about frogs is that they will eat ANYTHING they can fit into their mouths.  He is growing so fast.  I saw two other Tomato Frogs from the same spawning as Mustard, and he is three times their size!  This Sunday I am attending a Herp Show and plan to pick up two Solomon Island Leaf Frogs.  My family is growing...

I found a website that sells cypress knees and another one that that makes custom vivariums that double as coffee tables.

I found an alternative

I ordered an Asian Leaf Frog from California that arrived dead.  It bothered me.  I really enjoy the quirkiness and challenge of owning Herps but I take the responsibility seriousily.  I do not know what killed my Leaf Frog.  The only thing I can control is whether or not I have them shipped to me.  Soooo...  I'm not ordering the Malaysian Leaf Frog from Houston that I found on the internet the other night...

 

               BUT!

 

I found a local breeder that has tadpoles of the Solomon Island Leaf Frog, very interesting YELLOW animals.  So I'm going to rethink my 'Malyasian' Vivarium to an 'Asian' Vivarium, and I'll probably switch my 'Madagascar' Vivarium to an 'African' Vivarium to boot...  At this very moment I'm watching "Willie Wonka & The Chocolate Factory", Gene Wilder is about to sing as they enter 'The Chocolate Room".  It's my favorite part, I like it, it reminds me of how I live my life...

 

 

                          "What is this Wonka, some kind of Funhouse?"  "Why, are you having fun?"

My second day off in a row!

I'm sitting here in an undershirt and my Koi boxer shorts on my leather sofa watching "Message in a Bottle".  On my right is my Tomato Frog "Mustard" and my Albino Chocoan Horned Frog "Mr. Grinch".  On my left are "Mr. and Mrs. Walenda" my two Flying Geckos in my Eco Terra Vivarium.  I have been putting my things where they go and my Apartment is looking much better.  Last night I found a website that sells Asian Horned Frogs and Tomato Frogs.  I have been working on my Imperial Guard Army List (the one based on the Royal Regiment of Wales) on my laptop all morning long, and I have a glass of McAlister's Sweet Tea to sip, it's a good day...
