    Default On of the lead singers of this of the summer garden chorus moved in with me

    This garden chorus I am talking about was a garden froglet chorus
    since I kept the wattering system on all the summer
    I think avery leaf froglet from the neighbouring gardens moved to my garden
    they are useful so I din't mind
    last night whilw wattering on of my bigger potted plants I found him
    I think it was either aseep or housebroke because it dind't try to hop away in panick

    What a cute little thing. Thanks for sharing. I love it and I completely agree with Orchidjoe. Better the sound of nature than that of 'civilisation'.

    I love finding frogs in the greenhouse. I get a greyish green fella that crawls up into my vanda section every so often. He poses well but i'm guessing if I reached for him he'd panic and then i'd panic and the greenhouse would end up a mess. lol They keep talking about the frogs you can't pick up here and I have not idea which they are so i'd be in panic mode if one hopped on me.

    With this little one I know is safe
    they are not poisonous, have almost no slime, and walk around rather than hop
    they have little suction cups on their toes
    so they can hang virtually from everywhere
    so no panic mode here
    the only thing I have to take care for is for my cats not to find them before me

    That is quite a cute little green one.
    in the Caribbean we have little brown ones which we call whistling frogs, and they too, climb up walls. In the evening there is quite a chorus in the greenhouse. they are harmless.
    Sadly, they have a habit which I cannot quite figure out. As I said before, they climb up walls from the wet/damp garden and come through the windows into the dry house at night. If I see them in time I will pick them up and put them back outside but those I do not see will be dead on the floor by morning. Don't know why they do this.
