As many of you may know, I’m a huge animal lover. I have several pets and while I do love dogs and cats (and have one of each!), I’ve always loved reptiles and amphibians. Some people get grossed out by them, but since I was a kid I’ve always had nothing but love for them!! I have posted a picture of my bearded dragon before, but I also have 4 turtles, an axolotl, a beta fish (not a reptile, but not soft and cuddly either haha) and a Pac-Man frog! 🙂
The Pac-Man frog is my newest addition. I got him at a reptile expo in early December, and he was only a couple weeks old when I adopted him. While trying to come up with the perfect name for him, I thought about Pac-Man and how the ghosts are always chasing him. One of the ghosts’ names is Blinky, and well… the name just stuck!
While the video game Blinky is always on the move, my Blinky is not so active. Pac-Man frogs spend most of their lives just chilling in the dirt, waiting for their food to pass by their face. They don’t move around a whole lot! I thought it would be fun to get my little Pac-Man stress ball and put it next to Blinky to see if I got any sort of reaction out of him.
… nope! Blinky gives no shits about Pac-Man 😉 I’m not exactly surprised, but I thought it would be a fun picture to take anyway!
By the way, Blinky is just under 3 months old now, so he’s still got quite a bit of growing to do. He is already like twice the size he was when I got him, so he’s on the right track! 🙂
