Sat. AM I woke up to pee at 5AM and they were there AND there was an "add to cart" button, so I did...and they'll be arriving in about 36 hours, give or take. They're making a short overnight FedEx trip from the other side of the state.
They'll look something like these guys above (these might even be my 3, since I think they have added new photos to their site in the past week).
But at full maturity the black areas soften into a beautiful metallic grey/bronze. This could be one of the parent frogs to my froglets:

I'm pretty excited. I converted an old 5g aquarium to a temporary quarantine tank, to make sure the froglets are eating OK and healthy before I let them loose in the very jungle-like 29 gallon home that they will occupy for the rest of their lives, which could be a decade or more.
Today I took care of 2 medical scans -- I had my annual mammogram and my first bone density scan. I'm really interested to see what state my hips and pelvis are in after radiation to that area (and 3+ years of menopause). In the age of Covid I was the only patient in the entire place, as far as I could tell.
Hopefully my years of high impact running will have benefitted my bones, in spite of premature menopause and radiation therapy.
