NOVEMBER 2003 NEWSLETTER

FROG INVASION

The interesting topic at the moment are the frogs. We have white lipped green tree frogs living in our house with us.

They mainly stay in the bathroom and toilet, but recently we notice that the TV cabinet has one living in it on a regular basis.

The guests think this is rather cute, but I do wish they would wipe their feet when they come inside. I have muddy frogprints which go up the walls and the corners of the ceilings look quite grotty. Just another job to wipe the frog prints off the walls whenever you clean the bathroom. Now that the rain has started to fall, the frogs croak - it is quite a loud sound - and then stop croaking once the rain stops falling. The bathroom is rather echoey anyway and it sounds like an orchestra in there at times.

NEVER SIT ON A TOILET SEAT WITHOUT CHECKING FIRST!

One person had a particularly chilling experience recently sitting on our toilet contemplating the world, when a frog who had been in the toilet bowl decided it was time to leave. Did I say this person was male? Well the frog used all the available frogholds - as you would if you were a frog - and they have big suction pads on their fingers - and took advantage of this penis dangling downwards. Both man and frog got a bit of a shock and both exited the stage at the speed of light!

I didn't realise so many frogs lived in the rainforest

A great school project on the tree frog
