    Cute little frogs keep taking up residence under the spa lid.
    I have set up a few ponds for them and move them whenever I find them. I worry about the spa chemicals hurting them, but they keep coming back.

    A very interesting little fella seems to be very domesticated.

    Yes, nice images. Are amphibians on the decline there like they are in many places? BTW- is that a Pearson's green tree frog?

    In our general area I don't think there are any frogs at all, a few klm away we have a very large swamp, now called wetlands and there is plenty of wild life there including our deadly Tiger Snakes.

    We have about a half dozen frog species and introduced bullfrogs. All are on the decline except bull frogs.

    We have plenty of Cane Toads to spare how many million do you require
    cane_toad.

    That is a big adult cane toad
    They have a natural enemy now our big black crows flip them over and pick their safe under belly.

    There are other methods a good heavy boot or a driver golf club.

    As they are often on the roads cars/trucks do a good job as well.
