Prince of Smiles by Toadychan Prince of Smiles by Toadychan
This is my absolute favourite picture I ever got of my first frog. His name was Cloud, and he was a pyxicephalus adsperus, more commonly known as a dwarf African bullfrog or pixie frog.

He died Monday, June 7th, of a bacterial infection. I had him for two years--it would have been three come this September--and I can honestly say he was one of the best pets I have ever had. He was the sweetest little thing. He always made me smile with his own huge grin, and he still does. I miss him so much.

So, here's to you, my little Prince of Smiles. I love you!

Edit: I now have what I would like to call Cloud's little brother, another pixie frog by the name of Vincent: [Princely Smile]

Don't you see a family resemblance? ;)

AWE cute froggy. We had 2 African Bullfrogs both dies. One was 26 years old. The second one was about 8 or9 , he died about 1 year after the old one dies. I think he was lonely. I wished I can have another one sniff sniff but I can't find a place where they still sell them.
Anyway great capture ofthe prince :heart:
