    Can I have your frogs for my collection of preserved animals when they die?

    I figure I should ask since it won't be long, given the abysmal care you provide.

    Seriously, some people shouldn't be allowed to own animals.

    In my cousins care they lived a summer with no food with her not knowing they were alive. There is no way a hardy animal like this would die in my care like that. Second they ARE healthy. They have lived "2" years in my care so why should it change now? When I was first caring for them, one of them begain to get bubbles under its skin, there is now sign of it ever being there after placing it "next" to the fridge to cool. I have never had a single frog die on me. Also what kind of sick person would do that to any animal, if anything let it go back to nature, that is just gross.

    Those sick people happen to be scientist, and without those sickos we wouldn't know nearly anything about surgery and anatomy. We'd know very little about nomenclature as well.

    Blah ****ing blah. Xenopus are extremely hardy, but that means jack ****. Humans can survive just fine when continually surrounded with the scent of rotting flesh and feces, but that doesn't mean it's pleasant, nor a humane situation.

    A keeper who had any sort of responsibility or cared even slightly for their animals would actually ensure that they lived in conditions that were optimal, not merely survivable. Anyone who actually had a heart wouldn't keep animals in filthy water because they're too stupid, cheap and lazy to go buy a damn filter. They're $40 freaking dollars!

    Also what kind of sick person would do that to any animal, if anything let it go back to nature, that is just gross.
    Notice I said "when they die"; evidently your reading skills are on par with your animal care skills.

    I'd not kill the animals; you're doing that yourself. I'd simply ensure that their deaths wouldn't be in vain, and they could serve an educational purpose.



    Oh, and you want to know the irony: the dead animals I have in jars of alcohol receive better care than your live frogs. I at least change the alcohol once in a while.

    Seriously, give them away, preferably to someone who actually cares.

    Blah Blah, that is not at all what I ment. With my reading skills you would have noticed I can't even afford that and also if you don't understand I ment any thing that you do with the bodies that doesn't involve studing them not collecting them! I even said let their bodies go back to nature meaning they had died! You should really double check what you said, and now that you said they can live fine in that your will die soon is also contridicting what you said!

    Wow! Let us remember that not everyone is as articulate as others and some people speak English as a second language. I don't know if Ant does but it is a possibility.

    Ant, an animal is a BIG responsibility. If you can't afford or can't make time to care for it, perhaps a frog is not the right choice for you? Maybe you should stick to ants? Any pet store with an aquarium section will take them for free. Don't you think they deserve better care? It's like keeping a Great Dane in an apartment, and then not cleaning up after it. It's exactly the same principal.

    Look at the water quality in these photo's. Compare it to yours. Your frogs are swimming in a septic tank, dude.

    Dude, save cash and get a filter shop around, look on line I'm sure you could buy a cheap filter.

    Their is nothing wrong with collecting the body's, People do it with Ants, Insects, and mammals as well, it means nothing to collect the bodies, for later study, or a collection.

    I mean seriously, Ill buy you a F***ing filter... would be better than seeing them living in their own fecal matter, heck a siphon would be easy enough to make with some supplies I'm sure you have at home.

    Take a step back and think before you post, you look smarter.

    Then you can't afford the damn animal. Should I go buy a dog, even though I can't afford to feed it more than once a week? Should I go buy a hamster but keep it in a desk drawer because I can't afford the cage.

    Part of owning and caring for an animal is PAYING FOR IT. If you can't do that, give it away. If you couldn't afford to keep them once they became adults, why the *F*CK* did you buy them in the first place?

    This is a fairly basic concept, called "responsibility". You buy an animal, you are responsible for its care, its health, and its life. If you cannot live up to that, don't buy it. If your circumstances change, then give it to someone who can care for it.

    What you are doing is animal abuse. You are no better than anyone who beats their dog or never feeds it.

    You should really double check what you said, and now that you said they can live fine in that your will die soon is also contridicting what you said!
    Only because you are so stupid you cannot fathom my post.

    There is a difference between "survive" and "thrive". Hell, there is a difference between "survive" and "living decently".

    That these animals can survive your awful care and total lack of regard for them does NOT mean that your care is acceptable in any way shape or form. Just because it's not dead yet doesn't mean that's how it should be kept.



    Seriously, do these frogs a favor and give them to someone. It's obvious you lack the intelligence, money, or basic morality necessary to keep an animal. Stick to plants from now on.

    And people wonder why I think the first step to solving the world's problem is to kill 98% of the human species....
