Opening Line Contest Note

Please note that although I've started commenting on the entries, if I don't comment on yours it doesn't mean that I don't like it or have already rejected it. It means I haven't thought of something interesting to say about it...

What contest, you ask? Look here.

And where are the other


I'm a Red Eyed Tree Frog!

Red-eyed tree frogs come from the warm and humid rain forests of Costa Rica in Central America. Some believe that their red eyes are a form of protection called "startle coloration". These frogs are very mellow during the day, and tend to be active only at night, so if the frog is awakened in the daytime, as might happen if a predator chanced upon it despite its excellent day time camouflage, the eyes pop abruptly open, hopefully startling the predator. This species tends to do better in a community of other red eyed tree frogs.

What kind of Frog are you?

You should put this in your journal, too, to encourage others...
good idea!

when i was small, i had a stuffed-animal frog, named Froggy of course. he told me bedtime stories, but only when my stepfather was in the room. when he stepped out Froggy would mysteriously develop laryngitis. ;) this lasted until i got old enough that i was trying to use Froggy as a stalling tactic, at which point my stepfather phased him out of the bedtime-ritual picture.

so i now give stuffed frogs as "new baby" presents, and pass along my story to promote the tradition.
I love that story.

gnomi and I are very fond of all sorts of stuffed animals and Folkmanis puppets. We have dinosaurs and bears and of course frogs. Our usual gift is the Gund Snuffles bear, one of which can be found here. Isn't it adorable? :-)


I'm a Pixie Frog!

The African bullfrog, or Pixie frog as it is often called (because of it's latin name, not because it's as cute as a fairy!), is one of the largest frogs in South Africa. Usually, they hang out in open grassland, and if there are any to be found, they'll sit around in puddles. When startled, these frogs will blow up like balloons to scare away the intruder! In the dry season, they will burrow into the ground. These guys eat lots and lots of really big bugs, fish, mice, lizards, and even other frogs.

Re: frog!

You should also put this frog in your own journal, to encourage others to join in the fun!

You ask--I respond...

I'm a Budgett's Frog!

So ugly, it's cute! Budgett's Frogs, named after the explorer who discovered them, are large carnivorous South American frogs. They can grow to be 5 and a a half inches in size, but since they aren't very active they can be kept in a small 10 gallon aquarium. Their tank should be kept around 86*F and they cannot be housed with other animals because they will try to eat anything that moves!
