My parents have a pond in their back garden with about 5 frogs in it. I love sitting out in the summer nights listening to them sitting up out the water croaking away smile

I have been hearing rustling outside recently it's hedgehogs my neighbour has seen them. I am thrilled as hav not seen any for years and they are very cute

Just don't do what I did a couple of weeks back; I got so excited at the toad going "rrrrrrrppp" outside our patio doors that I opened them to have a look, and still being excited, didn't notice the baby toad jumping into our kitchen. Mummy toad got stressed, baby toad made for the bin, and DH and I were jumping around the kitchen at 2am trying to catch them both and put them back outside. grin

I hadn't realised before that some toads actually care for their young. (we googled it).

DH thought it would be funny to chase me with a giant toad. The toad had the last laugh. It pissed horizontally at him.

ripsishere Tue 16-Oct-12 03:16:12

And I didn't know that about toads.

We have the tiniest frog with the loudest voice in our garden. DS is entranced with him.
We recently went out to visit froggy and DS thought we should try topick him up and look at him. Froggy disagreed and leaped straight down my top <EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKK>

Cue much frantic scrabbling and freaking out grin

In the end froggy was unharmed and back on the garden fence where he likes to hang out. DS laughed hysterically. I think I might have ended up with sons frog pee on me though. Poor froggy. So scared he peed himself.

Not son's. DS did not pee on me. Or the frog.

I'm petrified of frogs. Even reading this thread is giving me the creeps.

<boark> yabvvvu! The sight of a frog makes me throw up on the spot and I pass out if I see one jump much to my shame in the middle of chester zoo ooooo just the thought has given me shivers and that feeling in my throat <shuffles off muttering and being irrational>

At one point this summer we had about 350 tiny little frogs in our pond. It was mad the dog kept falling in the pond whilst trying to catch them.

YANBU, I love frogs and toads and go all silly with enthusiasm when I see any grin

I have loads on my allotment, every time I move something they pop out at me. I'm worried for the baby ones though it's getting chilly.

There is a giant (4/5 inch) toad that lives outside our back door, even our cats leave it alone.

grin both in general and specifically at Wetthemogwai and the amphibian based larks. Much better than me and my firends trying to catch a mouse by sucking it up the hoover (my friends are quite, er, girly in that respect)

I think toads are poisonous for other animals to eat though, although I'd probably leave that toad alone too LFC

We had a MASSIVE toad in our garden in the summer that went "rrrrrrruuuubbbb" I took pictures and everything.

I had to dissect a frog in a Biology lesson once (it was dead though).

On holiday in Botswana, I walked in bare feet across a patch of mud in a flooded area and disturbed the biggest toad I've ever seen. I doubt that it was a foot long but that's how I remember it!

QueenofNightmares Tue 16-Oct-12 20:09:08

We get loads of frogs in our garden I refuse to take the bin out since one jumped out at me and I had to change my knickers afterwards grin DD brought one in to show me it scared the dog and peed on the bed, DH has rescued one from the drain that got stuck with its arse hanging out and the dog tries to eat them on a regular basis. I'm considering moving for sanitys sake.

I used to kiss frogs & toads when I was little. Love 'em!

RawShark Tue 16-Oct-12 20:18:25

Floopy21 Tue 16-Oct-12 20:20:32
