Awww, that was a great end post to a wonderful project. Thank you for sharing your adventure with us, Bhrino and I'm sorry for your loss. Very unfortunate news, but it is kind of odd that it would bury itself and not attempt to resurface if trouble were afoot? Maybe some bacteria did him in under the sand? What kind of substrate was it again? If soil, perhaps the nutrients actually got to him... since they could be toxic.

Well its too bad for Mr.Frog, but this whole adventure seemed like a good set of lessons for your daughter.
So are you going to follow her "reef plan" ?

The substrate is cocoa husk. It's pretty benign stuff but it does get hard when it dries out. I wonder if I didn't let it get too dry in the winter and sort of accidentally entomb him in it. But then, a hibernating frog around here would have to be able to survive being in rock-hard frozen soil... so I don't know.
