I went outside this evening and started the grill up to cook. I walked out near the pool and saw a frog laying still in the water near the edge. We are constantly getting little frogs who jump in the pool and can not get back out on their own. I save the ones I can but there are several a week that I don't get to. I figured this was another unfortunate one but when I got him out I saw his leg move slightly. I put him on the concrete and saw it move again. He was still alive! Just barely though. I held him in my hand and rubbed his back for a few and he actually started breathing better. After a few minutes he started moving slightly in my hand, he won't hop but he was walking. Anyway, I have him in a lizard cage right now. I tried letting him go in the grass but he won't move much without me pushing him. It's almost like he is in a daze or in shock. I figured that maybe if he spent the night in the cage he might feel a little better in the morning. What do you guys think? I am worried because he is just sitting there and not moving. There are plans and leaves in the cage, a water bowl and bedding in the bottom. Could he be in shock? Should I just set him in the grass outside and leave him alone? My fiance says he is going to be dead by the morning I am trying to prevent that of course.
