OK, so they were toads…

When people ask me why I keep posting here after all of these years, I generally respond by saying that I keep at it because, every once in a while, when I least expect it, something really cool and wonderful happens as a result of something that I’ve shared… like the time someone wrote to me Larry Flynt’s office, offering to box up all the porn they’d deemed “too terrible to sell”, and ship it to Ypsilanti. And today was one of those days. I just opened up my computer to find the following message from Eastern Michigan University amphibian biologist Katy Greenwald, infoming me that the frogs that Arlo and I just recently raised weren’t really frogs at all, but toads. It may seem like a small thing – to get an unsolicited message from a herpetologist – but I think it’s incredibly wonderful that I can just put things out there into the universe, and, on occasion, get responses back from people who actually know about frogs, have access to porn, etc. It’s like magic… And, yes, I will be following up with Dr. Greenwald, and asking if she might want to talk about amphibians with us. So keep your fingers crossed, and let me know if you have any questions for what I hope becomes a regular “Frog Talk” feature on the blog.

    No, it was Jean Henry who said they were toads. She and HW are different people.

    I thought they looked like toads! They are better backyard denizens than frogs – I think their skin is better adapted.

    I assume now we’ll be seeing toad/ frog porn.

    Frog and Toad are platonic friends!
