About this mod

Adds a number of frog friends as coop animals via Paritee's Better Farm Animal Variety. Should work with Stardew Valley 1.5 and the current unofficial version of BFAV!

Permissions and credits
Do you love frogs? Do you want the ability to have a completely unnecessary number of different types of frogs on your farm? Then this is the mod for you! Wow, it's amazing that this is an unmet need anyone has ever had, or ever will have.

This started as an update to sapphicursa's BFAV Frogs mod, as they kindly gave me permission to make it compatible with the current version of SDV BFAV, but then I accidentally redid all the sprites, added 6 new species of frogs, and just generally made a mess of things. Whoops.

한국어 현지화를 시도했습니다. 개구리 이름을 찾지 못하면 최선을 다했습니다. 나는 아직도 배우고있다! (It looks like my sad translation attempts are probably not really working, but I am looking into it!)

What's Included

  ♡  A whopping 12 different types of frogs, both mundane and rare, including colorful varieties of poison dart frogs and tree frogs
  ♡  Frogs are available for any size coop, so if you want them right away, knock yourself out! They're available from Marnie and cost 2500 G each
  ♡  These industrious little creatures will find forage items and gems for you! Check below the spoiler tag in the next section for specifics

Okay, But Tell Me More About the Frogs

For those of you who thirst for more frog knowledge, the species that are included in this mod are as follows. I've included links to Wikipedia and the Latin names in case anyone wants to look up some Neat Frog Facts™!

  ♡  American Green Tree Frog (Dryophytes cinereus)
  ♡  Red-Eyed Tree Frog (Agalychnis callidryas) — a.k.a. the best frog and my personal favorite!
  ♡  Clown Tree Frog (Dendropsophus sarayacuensis)
  ♡  Blue Poison Dart Frog (Dendrobates tinctorius azureus)
  ♡  Golden Poison Dart Frog (Phyllobates terribilis) — the largest species of poison dart frog, they clock in at a whopping 55 cm (2.16 in)
  ♡  Strawberry Poison Dart Frog (Oophaga pumilio) — specifically, the "blue jeans" morph, which is predominant in the wild
  ♡  Amazonian Poison Dart Frog (Ranitomeya amazonica)
  ♡  Purple Fluorescent Frog (Atelopus hoogmoedi nassaui) — okay, technically this one is actually a toad (a super, super beautiful toad)
  ♡  Fire-Bellied Toad (Bombina orientalis) — ...and this one is actually a frog, because common names are like the Wild West
  ♡  Pale Frog (Litoria pallida)
  ♡  Northern Glass Frog (Hyalinobatrachium fleischmanni) — I have taken some liberties and this fellow is partially transparent all over!
  ♡  Desert Rain Frog (Breviceps macrops) — just please for the love of all that is holy click on this with your sound on

TL;DR: When I was little I wanted to be a herpetologist, and now you all have to suffer for it. You're welcome.

Want to know what they bring home for you? Click below. Please enjoy the thought of a teeny tiny frog somehow finding and bringing said items to you. That's how much they love you.


Installation Guide

This mod requires Paritee's Better Farm Animal Variety (BFAV)! The main mod has not been updated on Nexus to be compatible with SDV 1.5, but you can get the latest unofficial version (3.2.2-unofficial.kelvinrosa-mouseypounds) here.

There are two different versions of this mod! If you just want an updated, working version of the original BFAV Frogs mod with none of my new nonsense, you can download it under the section for Optional Files. Otherwise, you want the Main File, which will include everything listed above. Don't install both! They will probably conflict with one another in a way I haven't tested but which I'm sure would be just awful.

Once you've decided which version you want, simply download that file, extract it, and place the resulting folder (either "[BFAV] Frog Friends" or "[BFAV] Frogs") in your Mods directory. That's it!


A giant thank you to sapphicursa for agreeing to let me mess with their mod and for inspiring me to launch myself straight into modding in this very specific, self-indulgent way.

All of my gratitude to Paritee for making adding custom animals to Stardew Valley easy and extensible, and to MouseyPounds and KelvinParkour for updating BFAV for the new patch.

Additional thanks to junimods, because I believe their frog sprites from Elle's Critter and Butterfly Replacements (Content Patcher) were used as a base for the original mod. While I'm no longer using those sprites, I love all of Elle's mods and you should check them out if you want your wild frogs (and all of the other base animals) be super cute!

Finally, let us all join together and give praise to ConcernedApe for Sebastian's 14-heart event. I wasn't spoiled beforehand and I straight up hollered at my computer. Thank you for making all of my marriage dreams come true.

That's All, Folks!
Please, please yell at me about your favorite frogs. I am a truly terrible artist, but I am more than happy to add even more types of frogs to this mod if there's one you love in particular.
