    I do love toads and frogs and want more of them in my yard to eat bugs, also, enjoy watching them in the live action.

    I had frogs come and live at my pond until the snakes in the yard discovered them... Then the raccoons discovered the fish. Now we just use the pond for when our dog gets overheated catching the Frisbees.... But we still love it.

      @Meem Kaplan Been there and done that. Father had some goldfish in our pond and then the coons discovered that by slapping the water, the fish got curious and thought we were feeding them - end of fish. They flipped them out of the water and left skeletons on the bank. Have to have lots of water plants for them to hid under.
