rescued froggy

i have had to rescue my frogs twice this week from casper, first one in kitchen, second on patio, they looked ridged and dead but they must make themselves like that for protection, i placed in net and slowely lowered in pond till they came round, then they swam off thankfully

Never had any here, no pond, but did have a Toad jump out at me from the log-pile once ! I was so surprised, must have scared him off, not seen him again !

i had them even without pond shirley, i think as there are so many ponds about here they came to eat my snails lol, i havent seen my toad this year yet, does give you a jump if not expecting it ;o))

Mungo used to bring frogs indoors and Chloe used to come running and tell me! I often thought they were dead but they were just pretending. I used to hide them in a flowerpot (on its side) close by the pond until they recovered.

They play dead as do newts I have just rescued one tonight. Interestingly it didnt jump in the water just sat by some stones.

Good job you're around to help them San.....

Great save San. Froggy looks appreciative. :-) I had to take one from Bianca too. Glad to hear they'll play dead. She only likes something moving.

It's strange to think of a cat going after a frog. I've never seen any of mine do it. They have all been so disinterested in them. I have a toad in my garden and Blodyn shows no interest in it at all . I'm glad really :o))

Hywel i was saying before none of mine have botheredbefore, but at this house dont see any frogs or toads, so may be these two little rascals wont get a chance to do it (watch this space) :o))

thanx guys for you comments, i was saying to baz this morning i was glad casper didnt bring me a frog this morning,,, baz said no but he brought one lastnight after i went to bed ;o((, baz brought casper in then checked if froggy was ok, and he was, unlike me baz left it to make its own way back to pond lol, but at least he made sure it hoped off ok ;o))
on a sad note i loft another fish today, two out of six gone in a week, havent a clue why ;o(( maybe the heat, really not sure

Great capture Sandra-you did well to get such a clear close-up shot :-)
Sorry to hear about your lost fish :-(

26 Jun, 2010

 

Sorry Sand don't like frogs. Nice pic tho. lol. Have a toad in my garden. not sure. may be more, but as long as I don't see them, they can stay. ha ha. Oh, and I don't have a pond. Hubby said we've had a toad living in our greenhouse for quite some time. Thank heavens I didn't know.lol. I'm sorry about your fish, maybe it is the heat.

Place a wire screen over the pond for a bit and see if the fish stop disappearing. Might be a bird coming and scooping them one at a time. Hope not though. You're water lily may give a good cover soon too if its a bird.

thanx richard, linda and GT, toads dont go for water linda they like land, especially damp ground,
GT, my fish have been dying, its not a bird taking them, iv looked today and another looks a bit weak to,, i really dont know why .

27 Jun, 2010

 

sorry about your fish sandra..... last summer i lost 2 of mine in the pond... thye just died like yours still dont know why.. as the las tone is still ok and survived the winter.........
youve got a pump on your pond havnt you.....if not it could be lack of oxygen in water..... i put a bit of water in the pond when i hose the plants in this hot weather.....hope the rest are ok....

27 Jun, 2010

 

thanx holly and yes i have a good pump and oxygenating plants to, like you i hose a bit of water in when doing garden to keep it topped up and cooled down,

27 Jun, 2010

 

there should be enough oxygen for them then.... hope the rest are ok...

27 Jun, 2010

 

thanx holly keep looking at one which is near surface all day and night, it seems very weak ;o(

27 Jun, 2010

 

Oh. Sorry to hear it. Maybe once the pond is well settled another bunch may do better. Might need to season like a fish tank?

How sweet is your little froggy...

28 Jun, 2010

 

thanx GT, you could be right, iv decided to leave the pump on 24/7, i was told you didnt need to at night but from what iv read in summer and hot the oxygen drops at night and to leave pump on so thats what im going to do now, fingers crossed ;o))
thankyou pip.. ;o))

28 Jun, 2010

 

Don't know much about ponds so not sure if you could maybe test the water, or add a nutrient or someyhing, like we do with our aquarium? Sorry another one of your fish is poorly. :o(

28 Jun, 2010

 

hi linda iv decided to keep my pump on 24/7 apparently in hot weather the oxygen drops alot especially at night so since doing that my poorly fish is alot better, so releaved i tell you ;o))
