He may be an American toad. Here is a link I found with sound effects included.

BeaHive, aren't those bull frogs?

I was thinking American Toad, but when I looked at pix, they all were different colors and I wasn't sure.

Yes they are bull frogs. So cute!

B- did you import them or did they show up.

They just found my pond. I live near many lakes & rivers so they did not have to wander to far. Friends of my daughters also brought over some tadpoles last summer. They do not always stick sround. I only have about 6 frogs so far this season. Hoping more will join the party as the weather gets warmer and the wetlands dry.

very good. Some friends have a huge farm pond and have offered me some bulfrogs, but I think that I"d rather wait for them to come.

Mrs. Ed, how big is the frog? When I was little, ohhhhhh say 60 years ago, we found a bull frog in a mud hole in Tennessee near where we lived. He was not in good shape so Dad put him in the kitchen sink to hydrate him. I remember him as being huge, but then I was pretty small. I remember his as stretching out, when Dad held him under his front legs, as being over a foot long. We took him to the mountains near our house and Dad put him into a pond.

oh, this guy was smaller, say the size of my palm. I saw him once more and heard him a third time, but havne' seen or heard him for a while. Must have went looking for a girl somewhere else.

He will grow a lot - especially after he eats your fish. They will also eat small birds and anything else they can get in their mouths. We have been fortunate to only have green frogs. They look similar to a bull frog but the ID is made by looking at that fold that goes behind his ear. On a green frog the fold goes down the back. On the bullfrog it turns down behind the ear.

Well he moved on after a day or two. Must not have attracted a mate. Pretty sure he was a toad anyway.
