    I have a REALLY big frog that has been living in my backyard pond for the past few years. I just love this guy!

    Yesterday my husband said that the big frog was sitting on the big bubbling rock in the pond so I grabbed my camera... He's still very skittish of me so I couldn't snap this picture from outside... so this is what I got through the window.

    I had to share :)
    The frog is almost the length of my hand from my fingertips to palm okay not my middle finger but maybe the two on either side of it lol. He's huge.

    My dog thrills every night to see him outside and make him jump in the pond. The frog has even let Buster get nose to nose to him. I think that frog has a bit of daredevil in him!

    My son brought my daughter some tadpoles on Friday so we put them in an aquarium. His mother-in-law found them in her swimming pool!

    That is so cool! Great pics. The frogs in my creek always jump in before I can even see them.

    I've always called him my Big Frog lol. I know it's sounds silly but that's what he's called... some of the fish in the pond have names but the big frog has always been called Big Frog.
    Yeah, creativity at its finest.
    He's pretty brazen that's for sure!

    If you saw my pond in person you would just shudder. It is overgrown with weeds inside and out. We are trying to figure out what to do with it. I'll be going to the pond store later on this week to get some advice...


    My frog is cool. I get a kick out of him especially in the spring when he sings for about a month. I'm still surprised that any young froglets find their way in to my back yard - and then they don't even stay. I just don't get it lol.

    About a week or two ago my patio had several small frogs that looked just like my big guy :D

    If I'm not mistaken, the big frog is the female and the little frog is the male. Kinda remember that from biology.

    So if 'she' was singing and you had several boy visitors ... you might be rewarded with tadpoles!

    And the bonus is all the bugs they eat!!

    Lalalala - fingers in my ears - I'm not listening - I'd have to change his name from the Big Guy to the Big Girl lol.

    I just read up on my guy. I don't know why it has taken me so long to do it - but he's a bullfrog and male all the way :)
    The way to tell American Bullfrogs apart is the male has bigger ear circles and the female's ear circles are the same size or smaller than their eyes. Their coloration is different too - the female has a white throat.

    I have no idea why it took me so many years to look up info about my guy. Better late than never.

    I have tried to enhance these pics for you. I hope it works in the attachment here.

    This is a once in a lifetime experience. I thought you should have the best.

    If it doesn't work I will try again a little later.

    Somehow, I get the idea that frog legs are NOT going to be on the menu anytime soon???
