When I was a little kid, and even a teenager, I can remember going outside in my parents' back yard, or at my grandmother's farm, and seeing frogs
at all times of the day and night (and especially at night, when the bugs were out!).
However, over the last decade or so (around the time I started college), I haven't seen a single frog anywhere. Outside in the yard of my current
house. Outside near my apartment complex in college (which did have a lake nearby). Outside at my parents' house or grandmother's farm when I visit
My question is -- Where are all the frogs?
Have they all migrated slowly over the years south out of the U.S.? Did some disease kill off so
many that frogs are near extinction now? Or something else?
With the frogs gone, the mosquitoes and roaches are everywhere now down here in Texas... I find myself missing the frogs more and more, as their
would-be dinners gets to run free in my house (the roaches) and bite me everytime I go outside (the mosquitoes)...
P.S. -- I can't remember the last time I saw any lizards, either!
