Hey John, I remember you saying you had fish tanks, I've had some as well, mostly cichlids.

Hey, just got a new pet! He's in a 40gl long, I will post pics one day.

Here's a link: http://www.frogdaze.com/pyxie_frog.htm

I have a friend that thought it weird a guy my age getting a frog for a pet, he said most guys would probably just get a girlfriend, my wife wouldn't like that comment, besides if I did, she'd kill me!!!

Have been wanting one of these since my teen yrs, had a pac man frog (horned frog) in highschool, but pyxies weren't available.

We're calling him/her jr right now cause we don't know its sex.

May have to put it in my will since they live somewhere between 20-40 yrs!

 I clicked on the link before i finished reading your post and the first thing that came to my mind was a "Pac-Man" frog!
 I've seen pacmans in the store and everytime i see one I want to get one..I just havent done it yet.....
 In the '70s I used to work in a pet shop....I had all kindsa weird pets!
 Looking forward to see your "Pyxie"!

One night yrs ago my pac man frog starts vocalizing but I thought we had a stray dog in the yard, next night I zeroed in on him and actually recorded his barks, swear it sounded just like a dog barking!!

JP, what a neat pet!  You need to put pics for us, is it the dark green or browner color?  What do you feed it?  Do they have packaged food or do you have to catch or buy things?  Do they need heat like reptiles? Can you dress em?  They would look cute in little hats... :evil:  Inquiring mind wants to know!  Jody

Sorry to highjack your post first of all John, anyway, Jody, jr is about the size of a walnut right now and he's kind of a dark lime green with a lighter green almost yellow stripe down the middle (which they lose as they mature).

I've had him two days now, the first night we fed him crickets and he just ate and ate and ate them crickets!!!

The juveniles can be fed every other day and the adults about twice to three times a month. As they get bigger they are usually fed things like fish, crickets, earthworms, meat and mice.

As for heat I have what's called a basking light I got from the pet store that can be kept on 24/7 without harm.

I have him in a 40gl long aquarium and a soil mulch mix for substrate that was suggested at the pet store and I added moss on one end.

I mist the aquarium twice daily and keep a large shallow saucer filled with water on one end, this morning he was in the saucer enjoying the water like frogs do.

That aint no problem JP! I'm terrible at "Claim Jumpin'" :-D
Taipantoo, thats just a female Pineapple sword..If you look close in the pics you may be able to see her babys, She had babies 3 times but this last time I decided to keep them...The male died. Funny thing tho, the male sword was the baby eater.I had a "Daffodil Brichardi"(fairy cichlid) in with them and she never bothered the baby swords!..She treated them as if they were hers!. The daffodils are a great family oriented fish..generation after generation will take care of any spawn..Once you have a breeding pair they are more like guppies as far as  offspring goes!
your friend,
john
