Sex habits of the African Dwarf Frog

It's important to preface this, SG's first Vlog (1), by explaining that just prior to filming, SG and PCSguy went out for an expensive French dinner. Escargot, lamb chops, grand mariner souffle and a nice bottle of red, the whole 9 yards. (2)

And while PCSguy waited upstairs, SG spent 45 minutes trying to figure out the best way to light her frog pornography.

Because when SG went to the frog store, she was assured that she was buying 2 boy frogs to prevent having to raise a lot of bastard amphibians. SG is a trusting soul, especially when it means she doesn't need to go double checking her frogs' junk.

You may want to take a Dramamine before viewing.

Finally PCSguy googled "Sex habits of the African Dwarf Frog" and learned a new word called "Pseudocopulation" which means "Remind me to go back to that pet store in the morning and thank them profusely for helping teach my 4 year old about the birds and the bees (3)."

1) I don't care what wikipedia says, there is no way that is right. Unless the Russian invented video blogging.
2) OK, that one has to be wrong too. It takes 10 yards for a first down, unless it's sarcasm like "Nice job getting it all the way to the 9 yard line."
3) Henceforth, called 'the frogs and the frogs'. Because seriously, you have never seen a bird or a bee go at it like this.

nb: The Stimey reference in the video is to this post about cat arms.

Doesn't the whole nine yards refer to something about fabric and not baseball?

Also, loved the Diet Coke product placement. Are you going for a sponsorship?

Frogs gross me out.

I hope they're gay frogs too.

I think frogs might have arms. But I'm not totally sure. Maybe they have pseudoarmulation.

I have to say my cheeks are aching and I'm afraid I may have woken the Peanut with my loud chuckles. I never knew that Gay frog Porn could be so entertaining. You might have just hit on a new fetish niche.

I hope you don't have a lot of bastard amphibians hopping around your home in however long frogs gestate for.

OH I love the ADF's. We had a bunch, but I have never seen them do that before. That might be an aggressive behavior. Maybe the little one is trying to show the big one who is boss. BTW, those are some pretty big ADF's.

I don't know about pseudocopulation, but that looked a lot more like foreplay to me. And rather dull foreplay at that.

I'm just glad that Eli knows what's what now.

Here I've been drowning my dates in bottles of wine, thinking it was the best aphrodisiac, when all I needed to do was hand them my bills and a Diet Coke.

I risked it and even though I get motion sick very easy (I can't watch certain movies because of it), I pushed PLAY without the dramamine and I think I did OK. Because it was a short trip. But anyway, I loved your vlog. And there is a joke in there somewhere about you not getting the lighting right, yet the lighting BILL has no trouble showing up.

Baffling. Hoping for an update.

These guys are seriously interesting. And when they birth their clan, I'd put in for a reality TV show for them.

Ok LOL at this "she doesn't need to go double checking her frogs' junk." I'm going to try to use "frogs' junk" as often as possible from this day forward.

Gaah! We 'inherited' an ADF at the end of the school year. You do realize these creatures live for up to EIGHT YEARS...right?
