  3. kibblenibble says:

    Eep! The ratio of froggie to finger swallowage is…well…eep! 😯

  4. the bug man says:

    Is that a Pac-Man frog? A co-worker of mine had one once. She said it tried to eat anything that moved.

  5. Holy shamoly!

  6. Queen of Dork says:

    That’s very sweet. I love frogs. I love the frog hand shadow.

  7. Trixie says:


  8. 😯 that looks like a poisonous froggie!

  9. In a word? Ew. (Somebody’s going to have a big ol’ wart on his finger.)

  10. Is the frog doing its best Richard Nixon with the the ‘V’ fingers?

  11. LOL !!! I think it bit off more than it can chew!

  12. chanpon says:

    Bulimic froggie needed help? :s

  13. Total blorpness!!


    Attention friends: I know I haven’t been around much lately – very busy at work and such – but I am pleased to announce that I HAVE ADOPTED A NEW MARMIE KITTEN. And….he’s a polydactyl!!!! Bertha has been mostly silent about it so far, but I am over the moon! There are photos on my facebook page.

    His name is Catfish John and he is seven weeks old and a little terror.

  14. Katrina says:

    What a pretty frog-have we ever had a frog on CO before? J. that’s a old wives’ tale and it is about toads….just sayin’.
    I love pollywogs!!!

  15. Dr. BServ — Congratulations!!! Catfish John is a spectacular name.

    As to this photo — WTF?!?

  16. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    dr. berthasevant, I get the page you requested has not been found. Wanna see da baby!

  17. So, I guess you’re re-thinking having bbq’d frogs’ legs for dinner about now, aren’t ya???? Take THAT Bub….. hahahahahah

  18. Noelegy says:

    LOVE the name Catfish John!

    And what kind of frog is that?? Never seen one so flamboyant!

    I was watering my flower beds the other night. Both of them run in front of brick walls: one in front of my house and chimney, the other alongside my garage wall. When the water hit the brick facing of the garage wall, SCUTTLE! About half a dozen li’l lizardkin went everywhere. The biggest was about 5″ long and the smallest was barely more than an inch. I wish I’d had my camera handy.

  19. Noelegy, I think Bug Man is right, it looks like a Pacman frog to me:

  20. Here are some photos:

  21. Sweeda88 says:

    Rainbow froggie makes me happy!

  22. eikoleigh says:

    OMG! That’s one hungry frog!

  23. jujube says:

    Frog?…uh….well…. Marmie kitteh? More pics, please!

  24. such gorgeous colours!!!

  25. Go ahead, pull my finger

  26. flutterbye says:

    Oh, ha! He flipped the bird at Pacman and said BITE ME! Toad/froggie just obliged. Very obedient little sucker!

  27. flutterbye says:

    Oopsie, wrong finger!

  28. I love how the frog seems to be saying, “Soooooo… what do we do now? You can either give up the finger or go get a magazine ’cause I’m prepared to stay here all afternoon… Uh maybe you could point me toward the tv and put on Animal Planet?”

  29. It’s definitely a pac man frog! I have one named Ginyu. He is three and nearly the size of my fist. He eats crickets mostly, although sometimes i feed him a goldfish or a mouse. He has never bitten me, even when I move him to clean his cage. He is a really neat frog! They make cool pets if you don’t mind observing and cleaning without much interaction.

  30. Lucy's Mommeh says: Dr. Berthaservant, the baby marmie is just adorables…I miss my marmie boys, Arthur & Merlin.
    We currently have a polydactyl grey & white longhair, a shorthair black & white “cow cat”, and a calico. There’s a feral orange longhair outside I can’t get near. He allows me to feed him tho. I call him Opie.

  31. kibblenibble says:

    Dr. Bserv, Catfish John is a love! Congrats. ♥

  32. Dr. B, I’m in love with your marmie. He’s so teeny and sweet. Of course, knowing kittens, he’s probably a handful when he’s awake. Still, how much trouble can one teeny guy get into, even if he does have extra toes! (Tongue firmly in cheek….)

  33. Whoa!!!!

    @Dr Bserv, Catfish John made me squee my face off!!! You haven’t seen it around, have you? 😉

  34. Madame X says:

    Dr. B, that is one adorable kitten – so tiny and soft!

    May Catfish John live long and prosper… and may Miz Bertha make friends with him!

  35. the frog with fitness exercises with the exercise being hanged he would contest the ninja warrior!!

  36. Hon Glad says:

    Yeaurrgh! I think you have to worry when you arm disappears down to the elbow.

    Dr B – Catfish John looks a sweetie has Bertha batted him yet, or just adjusted her
    stays and harumphed.

  37. It’s cute in one way, and freaks me out all at once. I don’t like frogs on me, that would have me screaming! Not sure why, must have had bad dreams or watched a scary movie involving frogs when I was a child…

  38. Elanor says:

    Coming from one who has never been that up close and personal with any amphibian before… does that bite hurt? And frogs, do they have teeth?

  39. bookmonstercats says:

    I want to be bitten by a froggie/toadie like that (unless he poisonous). Does anybody else think his hind legs look like the Wicked Witch of the West’s boots, but in technicolour?

    @Dr BS, best wishes to Catfish John – what a name. May Bertha and he live long and prosper together (just realised Madame X got there before me on that one, but never mind)..

  40. Miriam says:

    It’s little arms are adorable!

  41. Mental Mouse says:

    Wow, the colors on that guy!

  42. Paunchie says:

    EW! GAH!!

  43. To Elanor:
    Some frogs have teeth in the roof of their mouths, but what hurts most is the grip they can get with their jaws, kinda like a flat-plate mousetrap: they grab and hold their prey before swallowing it whole (as illustrated above with an enquiring index finger in the name of Science). So if a giant frog blorps up to you and bets you a dollar you can do the lion-tamer’s trick with your head in his mouth, DON’T DO EEET!

  44. judyrb825 says:

    Dr. Bserv. So glad you finally got your marmie. He looks adorable. Bertha will come around.

  45. LovesDogs says:

    Ewwwww! It’s not cute and cuddly and furry.

  46. Thanks all. Bertha has been okay, actually…keeping her distance, but occasionally venturing close. Catfish John is a DOLL….he sleeps right next to my heart! I have to keep moving him because I am afraid I will squeesh him but so far so good!

  47. Elanor says:

    Thanks dub1, appreciate your reply. I’ll be sure to stay away from blorpular froggies… Having my finger down a flat-plate mousetrap sounds painful. 😦

  48. ponies? i dont get it.

  49. Airplane reference!

  50. Colonel Jenna says:

    I’ve heard, “Never eat anything bigger than your head,” but this frog is the most optimistic creature I have ever seen. This could be an inspirational poster: “If Life gives you lemons, make lemonade. If Life flips you off — eat the flipping finger.”

  51. @ Jess : Oh. My. God.

    You have a frog. Named Ginyu.

    Congrats, you have just won an Internet prize for awesomeness.

    Made this DBZ fan’s day.

  52. Ow!!! I was bitten by a Pacman frog once (much bigger than this fellow) and it HURT!! It IS funny when it’s someone else though!

  53. I’m glad my pic made the site 🙂 I don’t have any cute cuddly kitties or other fuzzies due to alergies, but my critters have their own moments of cuteness.

    Stay tuned for when I can hopefully play dress-up hat-day with my crested geckos.
