It’s a frog!


     Last year we lost all of our bullfrogs to traffic or wanderlust on their parts.  We’ve only ever had bullfrogs, since bullfrog tadpoles were all we could get.  This year my favorite pond guy had native green frog tadpoles.  I bought a dozen and I’m thinking of going back for more since we lost four.

     I had a wonderful surprise when I went out to feed the fish this evening.  At least one of our remaining eight tadpoles has turned into a frog.  He is no bigger than a dime.  I’m looking forward to more and I hope they make noise this summer.

  1. That’s great news 🙂

    I did a happy dance when I saw him.

  2. I hope your new frog stays home.

    Me too. Good chance of it since he’s much smaller than bullfrog.

  3. I still miss the stories, acrobatics, and adventures of the Frogidial, and the ever lovable Frogzilla’s many conquests.

    The bullfrogs were good for keeping the starling population down but I didn’t like it when they went after my songbirds. I think I’ll enjoy having small frogs that will sing and leave the birds alone.
