Re: bullfrogs

When I was a little girl (maybe 7?), my dad went fishing one time and
came home with 6 huge bullfrogs on a stringer line, still alive and
jumping, which he then proceeded to put in our kitchen sink before he
got around to killing them later that night for supper. In the meantime,
it was my job to stand there with a broom and whack them back into the
sink every time one of those little &#$@% jumped out onto the
countertop! Needless to say, I cannot to this day think of bullfrogs
without thinking of that entirely frightening experience and how nobody
at supper that night enjoyed eating them more than I did!!!!!!!! LOL!!!

Did know that the bullfrog is the largest frog in North America....not
sure <br>about it's exact native or naturalized areas, but it is an
introduced species <br>here and out west where it is not native and
causes much harm to the native <br>species, as its behavior is well
explained in your posting.<br><br>Many folks have (introduce) bullfrogs
in their ponds.....the frogs are <br>enjoyable, sociable little critters
until they are large, then everyone of them <br>wants to relocate them
away from their ponds....unfortunately this is usually in <br>the
wild.<br>Noreen<br>zone 9<br>Texas Gulf Coast<br><br><br>In a message
