A Tribute to Lumpy

I wanted to share some photos of my deceased African Clawed Frog, Lumpy. The circumstances surrounding his death were very unfortunate and I will miss this little guy quite a lot. He was a very amazing creature and his habit of literally hanging around the tank in unusual ways permit me to take some of the most interesting pics I have.

The Matrix (a classic)

I climb up and...

I is a beautiful flower!

I flying!

He who will perhaps miss him the most


One of the most unusual situations I came accross (that's him in the back)

I can't tell/remember if this is him or not, but I love this shot. I will think of him being beamed up to Frog Heaven...

Thanks for letting me share. I would like to post some more as I continue to come accross them.

Oh, he WAS "matrix" frog. I love that shot and all of these, esp the "beam me up Lumpy" one. I'm sorry you lost him--he was a character.

I got a good laugh there-

I'm so sorry you lost him, and I'm sure the kitty is sorry too. They plan those fish/frog attacks carefully but just can't figure out that the problem isn't strategy, but GLASS.

A very nice tribute to an amphibian with character!

Remember that Darwin was mostly right!
