Small green tree frogs sometimes find their way into our trailers while riding on a wooden pallet. They seldom survive because once they get cold (our trailer in in the lower 30's) they can not move.
Yesterday I found one on the floor that could not move but was still alive. I put him outside on the ground to warm up. As I moved across the ramp from one trailer to another, I kept an eye on him. Slowly he began to warm and get some mobility. After a few minutes he started to hop around and a few minutes later he was out of site.
I knew I would need to find him and move him across the road to the tree line if he were to survive. After I finished loading my trailer I couldn't see him anywhere. I moved one of the trailers back to its parking place and came back to have a better look.
After searching I still couldn't locate him. As I turned to walk around the other trailer, I spotted him. He has moved to the shade under one of my tires and I had run over him. Sorry Kermit, I did my best.

Hello Squire. Seems I don't get around much anymore :) Truth is, summer has been really busy.
Poor little Kermit! You were kind to try and rescue him. Looking after all God's creatures shows a compassionate heart.
I enjoyed seeing more pics and reading more about your trip. Didn't they have regular milk in the stores at all?
That's a bummer (huge understatement) about your retirement savings. I'd be PMSing too!

Your heart is in the right place, Squire. And your mind is full of interesting information. I didn't know frogs needed warmth to move, to live.
