The Stickyfrogs are my first Green Tree Frogs! 😊
I had my first pet frogs at around age 10 or 11, they were Southern Brown Tree Frogs like Wayne and Basil, and their names were Simon and Steve! 🐸🐸
I think that was the start of all things frog! 🐸😊🐸
Toes has had a wonderful surprise this week!
She has found not one but two homes where her real life brothers and sisters now live! Their warm trees have sent lovely pictures to say hi! 🐸🐸
First Toes met her brother Sparky, who lives with another sister and brother at @sebi_nolan (Instagram). Sparky only has one eye but he is doing great and he has some new Southern Brown Tree Frogs friends just like Wayne and Basil!
Toes sends Sparky and the rest of her family at @sebi_nolan a big hug! 🐸😊🐸
It seems to be a species thing, as all the Southern Brown Tree Frogs I have had have tended to make a bit of a fuss!
I think Wayne just likes to make extra fuss because dinner is just so exciting! 🐸
