Changing A Frog's Diaper

Four of our frog photos are being used in the 2010 World Wildlife Federation's "Frogs" calendar.  

Seeing these gorgeous rainforest amphibians in sample calendars we received the other day brought back fond memories of six large terrariums on our dining room table for several months. Each was filled with rocks, stones and large amounts of sphagnum moss and served as homes for our amphibian models who were not exactly low maintenance creatures.  In addition to maintaining proper temperature and diet, the moss needed to be removed, rinsed and cleaned by hand on a daily basis.  We called it  "Changing the Frog's Diaper!"
