yeah they're good frogs alright. Dude's only movement was to tuck in his legs and get comfortable. Kinda like he was saying "kay whatever, just get it over with and wake me when your done!"

That wasn't safe for your frogs, they could have picked up dirt, bacteria, or cut themselves.

handling your frogs is always a mistake.

You may think its cute but it is an endagerment to the health and the very lives of your frogs.

They could become ill from the residue from household cleaners.

um kitten, don't you think I would have taken the upmost precautions before placing my frogs there? first off, there are no household cleaners involved. the shiny surface, that's plastic. Secondly, I made sure nothing would cut my frogs or harm them in any way. Thirdly, I handle my frogs like twice a year, so there isn't any worry there. I know the risks involved and I know the steps to take in order to minimize the risks. You act like I'm a two year old playing rough with a pet dog. I'm not. They were in this situation for all of five minutes, if that. I made the backdrop myself with frog safety in mind. There is nothing sharp on santa, all the edges are rounded and safe. Back off.

it's too cute , but i agree with KittenClaw22 like most of time ,
what a pity to put a healthy frog in danger like that .

the intention is good and it's very cute too, but imagine if you frog will be ill because of that, even if you take all the precautions in the world.

again the pictures are great !




best ribbit, And may the frog be with you

Not to mention you can clean your hands via water and soap! Voila! The wonders of modern-day hygienics. If you wash your hands immediately before, you can wash the bacteria, urea/pore residue off of your hands. Although I'm against dressing one's animals up in human clothing (I think it's retardedly stupid in general, especially when I see dogs with red sweaters on in Christmas-time ads), I don't see anything wrong with the circumstances in the picture, and the frogs look hilarious since they're "smiling", so no big deal.

I just think a lot of people get irritated when the dangers of cleanliness are parroted in the forum like it's something to look out for. It might pose a threat, sure, but it's unlikely -- frogs in the wild don't live on a sterile & wet paper towel -- remember that. Everyone knows frogs' #1 threat is parasites/stress.

On this site, it seems that disease comes from other problems, not these 5-minute excursions every 6 months for a photo shoot where the animals look relaxed. At least I haven't read anything that seems to come from that ....

Temperature and humidity ranges, vitamin supplements, lighting, substrate, cleaning the bowls, type of water, traveling to a new home, seem far more important to the frogs and much more difficult to control.

This seems tantamount to peoples' crossing the street or flying (if even that much risk) and for such an infrequent risk contributes to a lot of enjoyment of the hobby.

I've wondered lately about stringing the "rope" kind of Xmas lights in my enclosures....the ones that look like this, that wouldn't get too warm:

Now THAT I'm against. Only because, and I know you might think it isn't too hot, but frogs ARE kind of stupid, and can sit under a lamp/by a heating pad for too long and get burned. I say this because I had bad luck in the past with water heaters (electronics designed for temperature control) to break and overheat the water and kill frogs in a waterfall type fixture. Now, if something that's specifically designed to be at certain temperature breaks, I feel as though the lights run that risk too. It would depend on how well they're insulated, too. I mean it looks safe, but, something about those neon lights doesn't sit well with me inside a froggy's cage haha...I don't know. Take pictures of how you'd set it up.

Crap, I was afraid of that...it might work for my tomato frog, though, if I strung the lights on the "ceiling" of the enclosure, since he doesn't jump, and just turned them on for night seasonal Christmas-time viewing. I would not put the whole strand in there either, I will take pictures if I go any farther with this idea.

Yeah that sounds good. I was afraid it'd become an integral part of the housing haha.
