I bet. I believe you can get certain types of food poisoning such as salmonella by touching amphibians and reptiles and handling food. I always wash my hands after I catch a frog or lizard before I do anything else.
I heard you guys in Florida have some invasive non-native plant showing up that can cause blindness... as though the Burmese pythons were not enough. With so much international travel and people w/ exotic pets today, it's a good idea to be careful just in case it's not even indigenous.
Haha true! So precious! But I had to almost tackle my little brother after we were done learning about him - he was about to rub his eyes and these things will irritate your eyes like you wouldn't believe!
Oh wow - just noticed that! Very nice shot. That's the kinda frog you kiss - just in case. He looks like he could wear a little crown. :)
Thanks guys! I was very excited to get a shot of the nictitating membrane! :D
Absolutely precious! Great shots - I love the feet. There's a mission for Amphibians - you should enter this for that mission, too.
