Pixie Power!

“Croak … croooak ….      CROAK!” 

Did anybody else hear that?  I could have sworn I heard the croaking of a Bullfrog.  Hmmm…

“Croak.  Croak.  Croooak.”

There it is again!  I must solve the mystery of the croaking in the shadows. O.o …  FOUND IT!  Guess what it is?  That’s right; it’s our Prehistoric Pet of the week!  We FINALLY have in stock some baby African Bullfrogs, or “Pixies” for short.  Calling all amphibian lovers, get em’ while their young! Lol.  These cute little frogs are available for you to take home today and don’t worry, we have ALL the goodies you need to set up a palace for your Pixie and make sure you know the proper ways to care for your new pet!  Now, before you scroll about 2 inches more and see the “Awwwwe So CUUUTE!” photos of our available Pixies, let us inform you, much like our children, these frogs won’t stay that small and cute.  =P  Did your eyebrow just raise?  Ok… Let me explain. 

African Bullfrogs, Pixie Frogs, is one of the largest frogs in South Africa measuring at an average of almost 10 inches! So don't underestimate them when you see the cute little babies for sale.  Pixies prefer to live in open grasslands and can be found in puddles. When the dry season arrives, the Pixie burrows underground using his strong hind legs and sort of hibernates while he lives off the fat he stored from previous meals.   What’s on the Pixie Meal menu you might ask?  This giant frog eats anything it can fit into its mouth such as insects of various kinds, fish, mice, reptiles and sometimes other frogs! Bleh, YUCKY!   The frogs can even survive for several months in dry soil by absorbing water stored in the bladder. 

Usually, the hippity hop of our froggy friends would be something to “Awwee” at but in this case, not so much.  The Pixie frog has been known to jump at things it knows as a threat and the male bullfrog will also aggressively defend his eggs if an animal or a human should approach.  Think you can handle a Pixie bite? Just a little ol’ frog you say?  Well, Pixies actually has quite sharp teeth and can lay down a pretty serious bite.  However, despite their “aggressive” nature when threatened or in the wild, Pixies make fun and unique additions to any amphibian’s paradise!  Squishy and soft, these Pixie frogs won’t be here long, so make sure you stop by prehistoric Pets and take home your frogger today!

Ciao!
