I have one lazy frog! Yesterday, Xander stayed in one spot the entire day and only opened his eyes when I talked to him like a newborn, then he looked at me in disgust and went back to sleep. I have been reading any information I can get my eyes on to make sure he is living the high life. White's are nocturnal and rarely are active during daylight hours, so his inactivity didn't alarm me, I just couldn't stop looking at him! I turned off his tank light around 8 last night and he immediately started exploring. I gave him a few crickets and the ate them within minutes. He has a big, fat, light pink tongue that isn't long at all. He basically just chomps the crickets a few times and swallows them. I took him out for a few minutes and was surprised at how different his color is from when I brought him home. If you look down to my first post about him, he is very lime green. That must be his slightly stressed color. His I am happy and love my new home color is the color you see below, a deep reddish brown. I think he is very pretty and could sit and watch him all day. I am waiting for the lazy boy to come out right now so we can have what will probably become our nightly chat.
I love the white spots on his back.
Here is after he jumped for his first cricket. I was so excited he ate because that means he is happy! I ran downstairs to tell John and he looked at me like you look at your Grandpa when he farts in church!
