So I came home after a night with some friends and found a large "walking leaf" in my bathroom. I'm pretty sure one of the cats brought it inside judging by its broken leg. I took it into the kitchen for better light to get some pictures before letting it go outside.

On my way out the door I walked by the toads tank and figured why not. bug doesn't have many chances with a screwed up leg anyhow... I dropped the bug in the tank and mr bufo didn't realize what it was. Gave me long enough to take a good pic before the bug started moving around again and gave itself away. Soon as the toad went for it it disappeared in one swift bite

I did a quick google search and found that all frogs/toads do not have the same sideways cat eyes... some have normalish cat eyes that are verticle, and some have nearly round pupils.

Anyhow. A cicadas ventured in my home last night. first time i've seen one this close that was still alive. The cats seemed to have mangled this one pretty good cause i thought it was dead all night. it didn't move at all other than 1 little twitch when i picked it up to put it in the container. I woke up to a ton of noise coming from the container it was in and decided mr bufo deserves another big meal...

I dropped it in the cage and the bug plays dead again. maybe its common self defense. I sprinkled some water on it to get it moving and the frog snatched it up in one bite just like the last one :) It startled me quite a bit how fast he got it. I was trying to take a last picture and BAM!. if only i pushed the button i would have caught him with his tongue out.
