    We occasionally get massive sized bullfrogs around the house when it has rained a lot. They are extremely loud at night and like to camp right outside my window.

    Be careful with your pups and frogs! Not sure of there's a specific type that does this but my family's Yorkie used to catch them when they came out in the evening. When frogs get scared they let off some liquid like sweat that is poisonous to dogs. She always threw up after having them in her mouth, she's learned her lesson and we try to make sure she doesn't see them on the porch. Again, don't know if it's a specific type of frogs...

    the cane toads release a liquid toxic. They look like the pic 2bullymama posted.

    @2BullyMama - When I began organic gardening in earnest, the frog population skyrocketed in my yard. I see my little Pacific Tree Frogs regularly. They're hopping out of flower pots when I water and hanging out, sunning themselves on leaves in the morning sun. My yard isn't covered in frogs certainly, but since there's a food source here, they hang out! I love frogs and if you have them in your yard, it's a testimony to the mirco eco system that exists there. Frogs are a "core" species (not sure that's the right word) but you know what I mean.

    I've been in China for the last ten days and during a trip to NingBo, I was outside smoking a cigarette. It had been raining and it was nighttime. I was admiring the plants growing up a phone pole (philodendren, common houseplant here) and out jumps a frog onto the open glass doors of the factory! He measured about five inches "tall" and maybe three inches wide. Big eyed and adorable, I ran to get my camera to take a picture of him. The factory owner didn't speak any English but when I showed him the picture, he smiled and patted me on the back as if to say, "Wonderful! I love frogs too!" Our Chinese host said exactly what everyone else was probably REALLY thinking; "Dinner!" We all laughed like hell about that one!

    @Vicaroo1000 I was wandering where you were!! Hope it was nice in China. Wow! Another thing about frogs and toads is that they give you warts.

    Yea -- we thought tha too, so we make sure to make some type of noise when we are taking the pups out -- this way any frog/toad nearby will hop away before we get out with Banks and Cheli. If we see them before the pups... we just scoot the pups in the opposite direction.

    One night when Brie was about 9 weeks old, I took her out to go potty at about 4am. In the back yard was a possum I swear that was the size of a large cat or mid size dog. I have never seen one so large. It just went n its way n we let it ..lol I've heard raccoon, and owls, coyotes, even wolves. It is really cool to be out at night for that stuff.

    We used to have all that stuff around me growing up and now all you hear are cars and cats fighting. Got to love suburban sprawl.

    Lol! We love just outside of town so luckily we still get the sounds. It took getting used to when I first moved tho. I was so used to the NYC sounds of cars, sirens etc.

    30 years ago where I am at we had it all and still had some dirt roads to drive down. Now it is all 6 lane roads and a 22 lane interstate when counting frontage roads about 4 miles away. Light pollution is crazy and we have to drive about 60 miles west to see meteor showers and such couldn't even enjoy the most recent super moon.
