A man who discovered a young frog in his salad box is caring for him, feeding him snacks and bathing him.


Simon Curtis turned to Twitter to document his adventures with Tony, his pet frog.

“I found the cutest little frog in the bottom of my romaine lettuce tonight- it’s too cold to set him outside (27 degrees), but he’s been living in the lettuce in the fridge for several days now- does anyone know what I should do so that he doesn’t die?” Simon tweeted.

Tony was photographed sitting in a container near the vegetables.


Despite the fact that Simon purchased the salad four days prior, the frog was “jumping and plainly well,” according to Simon.

In an update, Simon said that he had put the “remaining lettuce back inside” the box and gave the frog a “mason jar lid of water, and sprayed the entire container down with water.”

Tony tried to flee his house, but Simon discovered him on top of a door frame.

The small amphibian agreed to be picked up by his human companion.

“Just spoke to Mark Howery, Senior Wildlife Diversity Biologist at Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, and was able to confirm that Tony is indeed a green tree frog,” Simon said in a tweet.

And then, Tony escaped from his container to go and hide in the shower.

“He was so dehydrated and shriveled I was worried he’d died, but he’s now immersed in distilled water, cleaning himself, and coming back to life!!” Simon wrote.

In a turn of events, Tony apparently had had a “third escape adventure.”

Simon then moved Tony to the bathroom “where the lighting isn’t as harsh and there isn’t as much activity.”

He eventually decided to keep Tony after “consulting with Dr. Jonathan Kolby, @MyFrogCroaked.”
