Re: bullfrogs

Did know that the bullfrog is the largest frog in North America....not sure 
about it's exact native or naturalized areas, but it is an introduced species 
here and out west where it is not native and causes much harm to the native 
species, as its behavior is well explained in your posting.

Many folks have (introduce) bullfrogs in their ponds.....the frogs are 
enjoyable, sociable little critters until they are large, then everyone of them 
wants to relocate them away from their ponds....unfortunately this is usually in 
the wild.
