Frogs, Toads, Salamanders, and Newts
These animals are mostly species found near Maryland (native and introduced) but many have wide ranges all over the continent and even the world. The African clawed frogs and African dwarf frogs are two exceptions that were added for the benefit of interested aquarists.

To see photos of the frogs and toads that have visited us, go to my pond pictures page under frogs and toads.
There is a section on keeping animals (including tadpoles and frogs) from getting sucked into pond pumps here.
One way to help frogs and toads breed if you have no ponds or a pond with fish that eat the eggs and tadpoles is to set up fish-less container ponds. See my tub pond page for more information.
If you have eggs in your pond and are not sure what they are, check out the pond egg identification guide.
Keith created a frog computer system for Sandra and sent this photo of it to me on 1/21/06.
