    I have lived in Northern Virginia for over 30 years and in the same house for the past 10. This year there are no frogs for the first time I can remember. Has me worried we're next. :eyebrow:

    I feel offended. That's just rude.

    I moved into this house across the street from an old millpond 12 years ago and there used to be a ton of frogs croaking at night.

    Now I rarely hear 'em anymore. Weird.

    Seems weird that after millions of years they are all dieing off.
  7. Shoot me your shipping address, I'll pack a bunch up and send them to you. It's almost hard to get to sleep with them croaking making a racket :rollno: It's been raining here everyday so they're out in full force.

    If you want huge crows, just ask me, though.

    This, or beavers.

    Same here. I pulled 12 out of the pool just today, some living, some not.

    Glad you still have them. I miss hearing them at night! What is strange is just last year I had tons and NONE this year.

    Really?!? :eyebrow:

    Just another casualty in the earth's ongoing battle with it's "humanitis" disease. :scowl:

    No worries though we won't destroy the earth... it'll take us out first... and then the frogs will come back. :hyper:
  12. must be global warming :rolleyes:
  13. If it is 'The greenhouse effect' why don't we just build fewer greenhouses?

    They're all committing suicide in front of my car. When I'm driving after a storm in residential areas (read: Still grass and trees) there are hundreds out in the streets, and they all jump in front of my car. It makes me sad every time :(.
  15. I noticed this as well, but then I found about 3000 tadpoles in a friends pond. My guess is that they are just developing later this year.

  16. that would be consistent with global cooling :)
  17. I always try to run them over once the road cools off at night and they all gather on it.
