Frog in the Frig

Well, not in but under or behind. Every so often he will croak a few times. Seriously, how do you get rid of a frog?

You have to send in a snake to catch the frog ... I don't know why your RV swallowed a frog?

Sorry, could resist

I like the snake idea, but you'll probably have to travel alone after that.

Now for the serious side.

First, you need to find out if it is a boy frog, or a girl frog. I'm not going to go in to how you do that.

Second, you need to purchase a frog of the opposite gender

Third, tie the frog you purchased in a small trap.

This should entice the frog out from under the refrigerator and into the trap, except if the frog already has an opposite gender frog.

If the frog under the refrigerator is a male it will work regardless if he already has an opposite gender frog with him under the refrigerator.

It should work. Just consider the similarity of the human marriage.

Happy trails.

p.s., you may have to get some children frogs if their is a family under the refrigerator. You will need to entice them to come out and play.

Some frog food in the trap could be an alternative. You can find out what the frog eats by dissecting it first. Oh! That's right, you don't have the frog yet.

Sorry, sometimes I just can't help myself and junk comes out of my mouth.

Frog I the Frig

I love all the suggestions. My wife got a male and female since we didn't know which was under the frig. She had them in a holding cage. I didn't know she had done this, so when I let the snake go he headed for the cage, ate the frogs, scooted out the door and the frog is still under the frig. Okay now, seriously, any good suggestions?

The frog would not be there if there was no food source. Do you have ants or other bugs in the RV? Regardless, to catch the frog get a strong-suction vacuum cleaner and simply suck it into the vacuum cleaner. If anyone complains, just say you were cleaning under the frig and it happened to get in the way.

I guess I don't understand by 'under the frig'. I looked at mine and don't see any place a frog could get lost in. I can access the cabinet area under the frig by removing the cabinet drawers. I can also access some area from the outside by removing the vent cover for the frig.

Is your frig full size? any cabinet under it?

Can you tell what kind of frog it is from the croak?...opps sorry..

I was thinking you could use a heat treated Framistan valve, but it is now obsolete and unavailable. Replaced by the armfarkle. Armfarkles were supedseeded by Rippencrotzes anyhow... So hard to keep up with the times.
So...I dont know.
Nevermind!

To capture the frog, leave your fly open near him, frogs are attracted to flies. To get rid of the snake, get a mongoose. If you wish to use opposite gender to entice the frog, study this website: Xenopus Care - Sexing Frogs

The problem will solve itself when the frog croaks.

Let the snake eat the frog under the fridge, then wait-- until he eats the frog in the cage, the snake will be stuck in the cage by the frog lump and you can carry him outside. Works for pythons too if you use pigs in cages....(National Geographic-- I don't stay at Holiday Inn Express anymore)
Also DW can see the lumpy snake outside in the cage and know it's safe to re-enter the RV...(this part of the plan may never work.
