Kalea's pets

Kalea caught a baby green tree frog, the cutest frog we've seen to date, beautiful colour, including the underbelly.

Instead of keeping it in her plastic aquarium cage, she decided to leave it in the mailbox where she found it, and make the mailbox more frog-friendly so  it would keep coming back to it during the day for shelter. She's been putting wet leaves and foilage in the mail box daily. Thankfully our mail hasn't been TOO soggy!

Here's the pet gecko that Kalea kept for a few days in her cage before letting it go. Its tail dropped off and wriggled all around when she picked it up, much to Tyger's horrified surprise! Kalea also said she saw the gecko change colour too. We think it is an Eastern Dtella (Gehyra dubia) common tree gecko.
