    Just had to put a couple of pics of the cuties that hang out at my house....I lovingly call them my deck dwellers. [​IMG] I just adore the little guys, but they can get so loud!!!!

    Aww, they are so cute!

    We have a toad that lives here, and he's out almost every night. He's in the garage sometimes, or in the front yard. But I've seen him out back a few times too!

    Thanks. [​IMG] I think they are pretty adorable. I love toads but seldom see one for some reason. [​IMG] I had a huge bullfrog here last night but he was a bit less than friendly.

    Cute frogger! I miss living in the southeast ..just for the toads ...well, and a bunch of other cool stuff that the city doesn't really have (especially, this one!).

    I have my own frogs here ..pets... so I still get to hear some calling occasionally. Elvis got his name pretty honest [​IMG]

    Two summers ago we had an exchange student from France. The exchange program ran those kids so hard they were always exhausted at the end of the day...poor Lea...a tree frog had taken up residence under her bedroom window and he would make that racket all night...she was NOT a fan of tree frogs by the time she went home. [​IMG]

    I love them! I love their racket and the way they watch us and the way they turn up in the strangest places! Now that the rains have started back, we see them more often. And we have a bumper crop of geckos, too!

    Your frogs are so pretty! in the middle picture it looks like he's relaxing in a hammock!

    Don't you think their eyes look like jewels?

    Awwwww! I love frogs!

    Our frogs sure don't look like yours, though! We have various types, but right here at the house, mostly little green, brownish or yellow tree frogs. There are quite a few this year.

    Thanks for sharing yours, he/she's adorable. [​IMG]

    I LOVE FROGS!!!!! They have been my fav animal since I was 1 or 2. My mom used to find about 5 frogs a week in the house or toliet ( they needed a drink is what I'd tell her). I just put in a frog pond so I could see them all the time. I love summer because when I got out to lock up my chicken at night the last sound before I go in the door is the little froggies saying good night.
    My kids love them too.

    I had a big fat frog on my deck last night. My cats don't mess with them. My DH said that if a cat or dog licks a frog they'll foam at the mouth.

    My kids caught 4 or 5 toads and put them in a rubbermaid tote w/o the lid. They just discovered yesterday that they can feed them worms and caterpillars ( I was going to make them let the toads go before they starved) so the kids are running all over the place finding bugs for the toads to eat. Its so cute watching their excitement! I am fascinated with it too, I have never watched a toad or frog for that matter feed.
