    Frogs may be cute.... until you are near its size.. then you may be glancing at the ultimate predator.

    i recently had a pond change around, now my pond was 8 ft x 10 feet, with a total capacity of 3000 ltrs approx, in that pond i caught 162 frogs ! now these must have been vegitarian frogs as they had no impact whatsoever on the slug population of my garden !!!

    It is my understanding that only toads eat garden slugs.

    I love frogs and Toads but I don't have any around my ponds. We have frogs at the creek a block away.. But they are endangered around here
