Erol - my brother's frog

Erol is a green pacman frog I bought my little brother for his birthday (not too little, he's 20.) Nate has proven himself to be a pretty responsible pet owner, which makes me happy, knowing that I don't have to hurt him (and I would)
Anyhow, he just got him into some frog moss, to see how he likes it, and he took a pic, so here it is.... presenting Erol, (so named from the Owl in Harry Potter who flies into windows)

Very handsome. Tell your brother to watch his fingers when the frog is hungry. I've heard that they jump at anything that moves including fingers if they are hungry.

They are always hungry...and they have teeth...and they do try to bite fingers.

Many people claim that you have to kill the pacman to get it off your hand, but that's not true...they let go if you raise them up off the ground a bit, and let their feet dangle.
*I have a pacman too, he's a big fella*

They had some on-sale at the pet store when I went yesterday, and I almost bought one, but wasn't too crazy about the dirt (looked like top soil) that they had buried themselves in. Ewww! So, I thought I'd better do some more research on it and find out what other types of environments they enjoy, as well as their behavior, care and maintenance. They have teeth and bite? Ouchers! Are they really aggressive, or is it just when they're hungry? And, what do they eat and how often?

They're not aggressive at all. They're normally very sedentary and pretty much just find a comfortable spot and sit there. Unfortunately, because of that, they are opportunistic feeders. Anything that wiggles in front of them appears to be big enough to fit into their mouths is fair game. They don't really have teeth per-say, but they do have large bony, triangular projections in the back of their mouths that could easily do a -lot- of damage to a finger.

Horned frogs are cool, but I personally like Pyxie frogs. I have one named Lump. I'll post a picture as soon as my webserver is operational again.
