    Cold-blooded critters don't like cold weather... Here's a frozen frog I found last December:

    Same frog after warming up on my hand for half an hour. Looks much happier. :)

    Haha, yeah. The crab looked about the same!

    I thought it was dead, he was movin' real slow until I brought him inside to warm up.

    Uhm, no. That's camel toads, not frogs.

    And I didn't kiss the frog either.

    Then you stuck him back outside to re-freeze? He thought, "You bastard."

    He's just a baby, Tiney little fella! (females have one big claw and one small one)
    Get a 10 Gal aquarium and put sand in it for a beach and water at the other end.................enjoy!

    Might live up to 2 years.

    Feed him minnows or other types of fish food.

    Fiddler crabs are a blast to have.

    This crab wasn't so lucky. A White Ibis grabbed this little guy last Friday at the salt marsh.
