I have a 2000 gallon pond that I built this Spring. I live out in the middle of dairy land (surrounded by farm fields and on a hill). Out of nowhere, 2 huge bullfrogs just show up in my pond overnight. Any theories on where they came from?!!

haha! I watched a documentary on raccoons in urban and suburban areas - it was amazing how many wild animals live within a few feet of homes and businesses and people have no clue they are there.

Racoons, coyotes, deer I get. But it's amazing how bullfrogs have a knack for finding water. The nearest water source is miles away. Crazy... Does anybody get painted turtles that just show up in their pond?

I haven't had any turtles show up at my pond but I have picked up several painted and snapping turtles in the middle of town over the years. No where near any water.
