So I come home last night... i notice something very large on our mud room door...

and as i'm pulling into the driveway, i notice something very large on our mud room door, which i'm thinking is a HUGE insect..



so i get out of the car and go check it out.. low and behold...





how on earth did this thing just climb up the door and just stick there?? i haven't gone out today yet to see if it's still there or not, but...

weird..

The frog was being super-slick trying to catch the moth below it.

I saw a frog like that in the garage. I'm use to the gecko's/lizards, but the frog caught my eye.

Tree frogs have no problems sticking to surfaces. Usually it's trees instead of doors though. I must echo Mojo's question: what is a "mud room"?

Mud rooms are like changing areas when you come into your house. It allows you to change out of dirty/muddy clothes and shoes. You don't drag dirt/mud into the house.

They usually have tile surfaces that would clean up easier than wood and carpert areas. Sometimes, mud rooms are combined with laundry rooms.

Is that the Mexican Staring Frog of Southern Sri Lanka? They're dangerous.

Did you check to make sure it didn't have a little web-cam glued to its head? Mighta been sent to your house to surreptitiously make movies for some depraved internet site.

If you live in an area that needs a special room to keep you from tracking mud through the house, then either:

1. Park in the garage

2. Move

But it's the only room in the house that is allowed to be dirty We don't have one anymore. Though I need a boot tray for winter. Well, I WANT a boot tray. A really old towel could serve the purpose. I'm having issues with needs vs. wants.
