    Does anybody here breed UK native amphibians in captivity? I remember seeing some colour morphs of R.temporaria on the TV many years ago, which looked like they had been selectively bred for a number of successive generations, so assume somebody has some ongoing breeding projects? I have never...

    Hi A Common Frog has been squatting in my tiny pond for a couple of years now, he never brings anyone with him to mate, he just hangs around. Do frogs always come back to the pond they were born in or something? Why did he not go off in search of as mate? Last year I found three smaller frogs...

    Right, so a park near me has a relatively large undeveloped area (Not fenced off really, just overgrown and not really touched.), One side is bordered by a river and the other is bordered by a long pond which runs along the border of the park itself. The pond looks barren but if you look for a...

    Well, I woke up this morning to find an inch long common garden frog in my toilet. That's a first for me. When I told my wife her immediate response was "oh that's brilliant luv" as if I'd planned the whole thing and had started breeding them overnight :gasp: Thank goodness my wife is so laid...

    Ah Spring! Cycling into work this morning, I stopped off a local pond to have a quick check with the warmer weather and there was a little froggy face poking out of the duckweed. Not sure whether a male or a female but there was some hot anuran action last year (the last weekend of Feb) at the...

    Well, This is very odd. For weeks i've been hearing a call-like noise from the corner of my room. At first I put it down to an odd cricket, then thought maybe my common toad was trying to climb the tank and making a scratchy noise. BUT, i'm now 90% sure it's one of my froglets. There was one sat...

    We have LOADS of Common Frogs in our pond this year. There is a bank that forms a bog garden by the side of our pond, with one patch of sun through the plants. Loads of frogs of all different ages and coulours had sat there to sun themselves to the point they were piled on top of each other...

    Has anyone else had a frog invasion last night? Well, when it's hot I open the side door of the house which leads into the living room, and after the rain last night I was disturbed by a regular thumping sound on the wood floor. Turned round to see a common frog leaping around the living...

    Wondering what would be the problem here. We have a few common frogs that we took in as tadpoles early in the summer as the field they were in was being covered up by construction work. They've always been well fed and their living area well maintained. One of them has recently not been...
