A monster bullfrog that I moved off the road tonight, on my way home from trivia. We've been having quite a lot of rain lately and the amphibians are on the move!

My daughter loves bullfrogs. I showed her your photos. She instructed me that I have to wet my hands before holding them. I told her I didn't know that and she said, "you're so old you should know that."

She's right! (Well, about the wet hands....I can't comment on your age. 😉 )

@Insectra Well, you could, but thank you for not.

Nice one ! I have seen some easily twice that size however. They ate ANYthing that came near their mouths !

Damn those legs look real tasty. Can you let me know where you turned him lose.

Please - don't go there. This gal deserves to live.

Haha, if you saw where this one came from I really don't think you'd consider eating it.

🙂 he looks kissed in the center pic - did you?

No, I didn't want to give him any mixed signals, lol.

@Insectra, that is very considerate of you. i admire your self-control.

@walklightly the only amphibians I kiss are Hellbenders. Lol

@Insectra, "hell-benders" - never heard of those. can you send a pic?

Hellbenders are big (up to 30 inches), aquatic salamanders that live in very clean streams and rivers. They're a species of special concern here in Pennsylvania. They were nearly wiped out when over-logging and mining run-off polluted a lot of native waters. I know a couple of places to see them in the wild and it's always very exciting to encounter them.

@Insectra, unbelievable! i was actually joking with my request for a pic. thought you were inventing the hellbender; but instead they are real & truly big - i love salamanders 😀

thanks for that, made my day - hilarious.

Wow, it's been years since l've seen a bullfrog! (Mostly Leopard frogs and smaller species here.) What an amazing specimen! Good job!

Same here! I see a lot of green frogs, but this is the first bullfrog I've seen in years. I love leopard frogs--they're so pretty!

Adorable! I am happy you kept him safe.?

Posted by InsectraA cute grey treefrog (Hyla versicolor) that I found in my birch tree, this afternoon. His camouflage was great and I only discovered him when I heard him calling.

Posted by InsectraSpring amphibian migration in Pennsylvania is well under way! Most of these are Jefferson's salamanders, one of our earliest moving amphibians and a species of special concern in Pennsylvania.

Posted by Behind-the-dogThese Scathophaga stercoraria (yellow or golden dung flies) were attracted by some fragrant poorly composted chicken manure one day (many years ago, now) as I turned my compost heap.
