Blinky vs. Pac-Man!

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! šŸ™‚

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 šŸ˜‰ 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! šŸ™‚

    1. Aww! Geckos really are super cute. I’ve heard snakes being called “noodles” more and more and that’s such a cute little term for them, haha! I’ve always really liked them. You know, I was wigged out by tarantulas at first too, but like you I’ve grown to appreciate them! I saw some at the last reptile expo I went to and I thought they were pretty cute! I’d like to hold one at some point, as long as I’m with someone that knows how to handle them and can tell me how I can hold it without scaring it!

      1. I try not to kill anything if I can help it, including the “ugly” animals. Like spiders are just doing their jobs eating bugs. Most of them won’t bite you and they just want to be left alone. As long as something isn’t harming me, I don’t like to harm it. Have you seen those orchid mantises? Omg…I’m TERRIFIED of bugs, but those little guys are so freaking adorbz. There’s a video with them and those leaf bugs, the ones that literally look like leaves, and they’re both cute. I’m horrified by cicadas though even though they don’t hurt you lol. They’re just big and scary looking, but again, they don’t hurt you, so I’d rather just run away screaming and not hurt them šŸ˜€

      2. Aww me too! Except for big, disgusting roaches… those have freaked me out since I was a kid and even as a grown ass woman I will scream and run from them and I don’t even care LOL! Here in Florida, they are pretty common bc of the humid, gross weather and uggh… they are just gross! They don’t hurt you at all but I just can’t seem to get over that fear!

        Aww orchid mantises are cute!! I agree that some bugs are pretty adorable. I always thought ladybugs were cute, too. I even have some tattooed on me šŸ˜‰ Cicadas are a little unnerving… I remember my husband and I were at my grandma’s house last year swimming in her pool and there was one that just randomly fell out of a tree and landed on the deck. My husband went to push it back onto the grass and it let out this ear-splitting screech that freaked us both out LMAO!!

      3. Nope, nope, nope, and more nope. Those are on my list of bugs that I cannot stand. I used to see dead ones in the basement of my apartment, and that was bad enough. I’m just terrified of them in general. They look SO creepy. Then one day I was walking down my hallway which is on the third floor and there was one bold as brass right there. I freaked out, walked all the way back downstairs and went around and up the other way. I called the office immediately and told them about it. They said they’d have the exterminator spray when he came next week. I don’t know if it was the same one, but I kept seeing it so I just started coming in the other way to avoid seeing it, and I told my cats that they had ONE JOB. Thank goodness I never saw one in my apartment. Ugh, I hate those things.

        Ack, you have the palmetto bugs. I know about them, and I am SO sorry D: I know when it’s humid enough they fly, and all I can think is “Why God?! Why have you forsaken me??!” That happened in New York City one summer, and I was so angry the news had reminded me that they do have wings ughhhh omg I hate them so much lol.

        I would’ve lost my mind if that cicada incident had happened to me. Nightmares and flashbacks for DAYS lol. They pretty much just sit in trees screaming for sex, but they are so creepy looking.

      4. Ewww! I would’ve done the same thing! If I see one, I go the opposite direction, even if it’s counterproductive to do so. I can barely even handle the dead ones, lol!

        Yes, those suckers FLY and they always seem to fly right towards your face! So nasty. Gives me anxiety just thinking about it! Pest control is your best friend during the summer months here! šŸ˜‰ Luckily my husband is a pest control tech, but even he hates them and doesn’t want to be anywhere near them!

        HAHA oh yeah I was freaked out over the cicada! It wouldn’t stop screaming lmao!

      5. They’re just so creepy looking. They don’t have “faces” per se and they just skeeve me out ugh. Like I think about how antennae and whiskers are basically the same thing, but cats have adorable little faces lol. I always hope if we ever do make contact with aliens they aren’t buggy haha.
