It’s that time of year…

One morning whilst walking the dogs with the boys, I came across two frogs utterly besotted with each other. Personally, I had no idea what do to, as they were in the middle of the road, the dogs wanted to go see what was jumping around and there was a strong possibility a car could come around the corner at any moment. Luckily, I have a knowledgeable husband who told me how to handle them and how to move them safely. For instance, I was totally ignorant about their ability to absorb practically everything through their skin. I’m not talking Marvel superpowers, but things like acid and salts on our skin can cause real harm to them! If you’re interested here is a really great website that tells you all about the little green guys, and what you can do to help them should you come across a courting pair in the wrong place.
