A new pet

THis is not the actual pet, but one that looks similar.  Meet Cookie.  She is a Bufo Americanus.  American Toad.  She was seen hopping across the lawn last night right toward the house.  She is very large for a toad also.  We have her established in a nice aquarium with plenty of dirt and leaves to dig into and a dish of water to sit in.  She seems happy and has already eaten a cricket for dinner!

Hi Cookie!

Do you have any of those little tiny baby toads in the summer? They're so cute!

What a lovely pet to have.  Our toads here are nothing like that.

Cookie is a cutie!  The toads around my place sit on the front porch under the lights catching bugs.  I love toads & frogs.

Has to be better than running from predators all night long every night.  Glad she's well fed!  ;)
