    If he's anything like our big bullfrogs, you'll see the small frog population quickly declining.

    What is strange here, I saw a few bull frogs years ago, have not seen them since, but do have tons of green frogs.

    He IS a big boy! Hopefully he won't snack on baby duckings or birds.

    If he was in my pond I'd move him to a far away lake.

    It is like moving the hitman to another location, so far I have not noticed issues. When they are big they can eat some big things.

    You can rest assured that he/she is certainly eating............Something! You probably really don't want to know what.

    That was the moment I knew we had a REAL POND - when bullfrogs go wild! It's funny though - we've only had two bullfrogs that were bird catchers. I wonder if it's a learned behavior? Or maybe we just have more small frogs now so our bullfrogs can settle for the easier catch?

    Bet this big boy would eat my little sized fish without an issue.

    Oddly enough ours have never bothered our fish. They co-exist peacefully. But I bet if he got hungry enough he would eat them... bullfrogs seem to go after anything they can get their big mouth around, even if they can't swallow it!
