I am searching for Ranid frogs / froglets / spawn (I'm particularly fond of Lithobates), preferably near Portsmouth but if the price was right I'd consider a courier if not local. If you have any that fit the bill, get in touch!
I just posted about identifing this frog and I think I have nailed it down to a southern leopard frog. My problem now is he seems very swollen around his belly and under his jaw. At first I thought just might be from his metamorphosis from tadpole to frog but it is not going away. Also the back...

I read somewhere on a post here that I should give it a while for them to settle before feeding, but can't find the post now.
