Mini monster visits museum
With the showers overnight we had a mini visitor to the museum, hoping very fast across the floor, this penny sized mini frog had wandered in out of the rain. It in danger of being trodden on. Before we could rescue it did manage to get tangled up in a cobweb. This is not the first time, at this time of year when weather conditions are just right the baby frogs seem to move home, and as they can hop under our door, we find them inside. Last year we had half a dozen at the same time. It is amazing how quick they move, when groan up they tend to freeze when in danger but the mini version seems to try to make a run for it.
The second picture shows our frog looking for a safer home.
How big is it? The first picture is taken on a smooth concrete slab, the patern is the grain of the concrete, it would fit on a penny!
