    Last weekend we went mudding and at one point we stopped and I got out of the truck and found this frog/toad just chillin in the mud. He's been living in my aquarium ever since. I have lots of cork and plants in my fish tank so he has plenty of terrain, but he prefers to sit at the front of the tank near an oyster shell. He stays in the oyster shell until I open the lid. Then he comes out anticipating a meal. He eats very small insects like ants right from your hand, or tweezers. He has eaten a mealworm, but it is hard to find a mealie small enough for him to eat. He's about half an inch in diameter. He never goes into the water, but seems to like the humidity. Does anyone know what I have here?

    I live in Pembroke Pines. That was just a little temporary mudhole we found right of Griffen Rd. We used to go out to "Lost Lake" right off 75, but I've heard that it's off limits now. I've gone through two trucks since the last time I went out there. LOL

    Yup, thats a narrowmouth all the way. They're cute little buggers, but I've never seen one in person. He ain't gonna get much bigger than that either.
