Re: How long does it take for a frog to dehydrate?

Any chance it is not the same frog? Maybe Mr. Desiccated served as a warning to the cute little frog you saw and he hopped his way out?

That thought did cross my mind, that there were TWO of them.

But he/she is definitely missing! Or that was the dead one. (The water bowl seems to be untouched except for a dead moth, which should have been eaten by now, if Fred the Frog was still alive?)

Never mind, at least I still have "Freddie the Fly" - he`s still here this morning, now 4 days old. Seems to be walking around more than flying. Old age?

Now ..... I definitely have to get out of the house this morning and get a life! .... Volg here I come.........

Nil you are SO funny! I now have this mind picture of my creepy neighbor lady sneaking in the front door - down the cellar steps - finding Frog - and squeeshing him to death - because I cut back the encroaching bushes on the boundary and painted some stuff on the cut ends and now her wild uncontrolled forest tree/creeper things seem to have died?

How would she have known I liked that frog?

Maybe she`d attack the cat, but not frog in basement!

Re: How long does it take for a frog to dehydrate?

Maybe he isn't dead?
Here is some advice to help froggy recover....
Quote:
Dehydration
Maintaining a proper level of humidity in your treefrog’s terrarium is an important part of keeping your pet healthy. If the levels are off, it will not take long for your treefrog to become dehydrated. Symptoms include a darkening of the skin color, wrinkled and dry skin, closed eyes, and a complete lack of movement. If your frog is dehydrated, place him in a shallow dish of clean water. As he soaks, mist his back every once in a while to help with the hydrating and to remove any pieces of substrate or mucus that may have accumulated on his back. To prevent this from happening again, work on adjusting the humidity levels in your tank.

You can stick the cadaver on your room humidifier with the mouth wide open over the steam outlet and hope for the best...

They dry out pretty fast once they've croaked.

Maybe the poor frog just needed a smoke but because of the ban, he couldn't?

Is this machine will do it though?

Thank you for your concern.

But Frog was too far gone for any advice!
He was flat, black and CRISP.

Ja, must do! 3 1/2 days - from jumping around looking intelligent - to a crisp black flat thing!

Re: How long does it take for a frog to dehydrate?

Or maybe a vampire bat lives in the basement and sucked out all of the poor frog's blood. (Do frogs have blood?)

If you ever go to the lovely town of Estavayer on the South side of lake Neuchatel, there is a whole Museum dedicated to dried frogs in costumes

Re: How long does it take for a frog to dehydrate?

This was begun as a very serious thread, and now you all having fun with it?

If you could have seen that little enquiring face, the happy hopping around, you wouldn`t be recommending I stick it`s dehydrated mouth over a hot steam gadget, or that it`s blood was sucked out by a vampire.

But now, on a more serious note, I can report, categorically, that a fly does not live longer than 4 days, discounting the time it was born and took to find a house to live in. Fred the Fly is nowhere in sight after this mornings greeting.

What is heartening here, is that EF is a bunch of very caring folk, albeit with a macabre sense of humour

My frog already has a job.
His carcass is being held in readyness, as Nil suggested, to be nailed to the Prodigal Son`s bedroom door, with a knife, should he revert to his previous behaviour!

All things happen in good time huh?
