It's a painted reed frog. Not sure how the little dude got here considering the room is on the second floor? 😭 he's pretty chill though so I guess he can stay. I'm just so confused lmao

Update: I'm keeping it. It's perfectly legal to have them as pets. Since they're invasive(despite being indigenous), there's no laws protecting them.
I'll do all the research I need to do in order to give it a decent quality of life

I had a frog when I was four, let's just say I hugged it so hard I knocked the breath out of it forever,πŸ˜‘ but don't let them get hugged by four year olds ok? but that sounds so fun!

What an adorable new friend! Did you name him yet?
I was just looking at frogs on Kijiji for Jordyn, I wish I'd find one on our window instead:D

My mom decided its name should be Picasso. I'm still trying to figure out if it's male or female. Apparently the males are more vocal...

I wasn't even planning to get one but oh well, here I am xD
I think some pet stores sell reed frogs, apparently they're quite easy to care for. They're very small though and can easily get injured

Sir Fiona XXIII?
Its a cool name but I already get enough weird looks on a daily basis πŸ˜€ but I mean I'm gonna get judged for having a frog anyway so I might as well name her something absurd

We had a koi fish named Johnny James Pabl III.. my brother named him. Apparently there was a JJP 1 and 2 lmao
