The Finley Channel!

After Finley's new front legs popped out, it was time for me to jump into action. I prepared a little morphing tank- I got a long ziploc container and proped it up with a short piece of pipe. I threw in a chunk of prayer plant and put him in it. Do you have any idea how stressful it is to move a living being THAT small and THAT fragile? I almost had a heart attack!

The next morning... He made the final leap. He was standing in the dry side of the tank, with his little front legs stretched out underneath him and his chin proudly aimed at the sky.

So. Stinking. Cute.

His markings are getting brighter and brighter, and his tail is becoming a thing of the past.

And in other news... you know the HUGE thing that we're working on? Well, we're still working on it, and I think I jinxed myself too much by even being an optimist. You will all just have to wait until the pieces fall into place.


  1. Finley is SO tiny! It's hard to get that scale from the normal pictures, but I was looking at the first one of the container today and was like "where is he?" Aww. . the babies grow up so fast. :)

  2. He's seriously the smallest thing I've ever kept. It's amazing to watch him grow... today he was on the very top of the container, doing what dart frogs do best- hanging out. It's weird to think 3 days ago he was basically just a fish with legs.

    Weird how this life thing works, isn't it?
