Today, when I got home from school, my dad was down in our basement changing our sump pump. Apperantly the sump pump had broken, and my dad didn't
know for how long it had been that way. Now here comes the strange part. My dad told me, that when he first went down there and looked at the pump, a
bunch of frogs leapt from somewhere in the basement and into the sump, which was full. We have no idea how they got in to the basement.
The only way in was through a pipe that connected to the older, broken pump. But there is a check valve built into the pipe to prevent objects from
getting in. Anyway, as soon as I heard there were frogs where they weren't supposed to be I set about catching them.
After my dad replaced the pump I caught 5 frogs and put most of them in seperate containers, I've got two frogs sharing one container. Eventually
I'm going to have to set them free but before that I want your peoples input on how they might have gotten in.
