Odd Little Pets: Grey Tree Frogs

Permit me to indulge myself. I had some of these grey tree frogs once, and I just loved ’em! They tame fast, and mine used to perch on my finger like parakeets and eat out of my other hand.

Yes, I know the ones you see in the video are green. They can turn green or grey at will. They’re very good at changing color.

They have a sweet song, too. Well, I thought it was sweet. My housemates threatened to poison me if I didn’t release the frogs back into the wild. I had to comply.

I hope they liked me as much as I liked them. The frogs, not the housemates.

    When I was young, we lived in a very rural part of Pennsylvania – farm country. It was wonderful at night, listening to the tree frogs chirping and watching the fireflies flitting around. Memories are wonderful things.
