Back in May I posted about our new little turtle that Kristian had found. Well we still have her and she's grown quite a bit since then. Kristian created a wonderful tank for her to live in with rocks and greenery which you can see in the picture below. If you look closely you can see little Weddette on the big rock sunbathing.
Once the tank was setup Kristian decided that Weddette needed a friend so he went out a bought a little frog to add to the mix. We named the frog Herpe because of all the bumps he has. We're strange I know. Below is a picture of Herpe.
Well at some point back in June or July Herpe decided to go into hiding behind the rocks and we didn't see him again. He never came out and without going in and taking everything apart we couldn't see him. Eventually we determined that he must have died and either the turtle ate him or his little frog body was still behind the rocks. I kept telling Kristian he needed to go in there and try to find him but I think Kristian was a little scared to find a dead frog in the tank.
Cut to today and it's now been around 4 months since we've seen Herpe and Kristian calls me on the way to work to tell me that Herpe is ALIVE! He came crawling out of his hiding spot this morning for a brief minute or two before going back to his little cave. We couldn't believe. We have no idea what he's been eating this whole time or if he ever does come out of his hiding spot when we're not around.
We are both so happy that Herpe is in fact alive and well and we view this as a good sign of things to come...unless of course he's really some Zombie frog which wouldn't be quite so cool.
