Talk about survival instinct... Male
Default Talk about survival instinct...

I moved all of my orchids indoors in early-to-mid-November, after thoroughly dosing them a couple of times with Azamax.

Yesterday I was watering them, and found this guy on one of the tables between pots. I have no idea what he might have been feeding on, but I released him outdoors to give him a chance to survive.

I had a seedling loose in its pot and as I emptied the pot to reseat the orchid a frog fell out! I think it must have gone in the pot to try and escape some of the heat we had been getting the last few weeks.

I found a little tree frog in the saucer of one of my orchids one time. Mysterious, because mine never go outside, so the little guy or girl got into the house in some other way.

I've brought in frogs and anoles before, but to have one last 2 months is pretty amazing.
