I was finally able to fire off a couple of very quick shots of Michi and Ren. I had them in this temporary enclosure while I was cleaning their bigger one and doing some rearranging inside it.
It's amazing how huge Michi is now, especially compared to little one-eyed Ren. I'm still not sure what kind of frogs they are. I'll probably never try raising tadpoles again, unless I know what kind of frogs they'll be!
Here, Ren seems to be wanting a piggyback ride from Michi. (Shouldn't they be playing leapfrog???) But when it was Michi's turn, he nearly squished the life out of poor little Ren! I had to chase him off of her. (No, we still don't know for sure of their sexes, but from what I've read, we may have actually guessed correctly!) It's so nice seeing Michi tolerate Ren's presence now. Ever since her buddy, Yasu, died, Ren has been kind of lost.
And the fun we have now is listening to Michi learn how to make froggy sounds. He doesn't do it very often - once or twice each night - so it takes a little while for it to register in my brain when he does do it. I wish I could describe it...it's definitely not a full adult call yet.
