Lucky you! lol. We're still in the grips of winter here.

I kept one once, a peeper. Beautiful animal,Hyla Crucifer. It does have a distinct cross shape on its back. I kept it in what was called a bell jar. A big round jar that I made into a terrarium. It was wrong, in some fundamental way. It was safe, and well fed, but I had no right to keep it there. In the morning it would sing, for a mate it would never find. Wait, I shouldn't say that. After a few months I turned it loose again.
