What frog is this?

This frog-like beastie was hanging out next to our pond. It looked to be about three inches long. My best googling makes me think it's a baby bullfrog but I'm a bit confused by the dazzling yellow chin stripe. This is in suburban Bloomington, Indiana.

Peter Polliwog Syndrome?

Could a tadpole remain a tadpole, and never metamorphose, for a long time, years even? The internet implies that captivity, water temperature, or available nutrients could have an effect on prolonging a polliwog's larval state. But could this state, given the right conditions, persist for years? [more inside]

What kind of frog/toad will this tadpole be?

Asking for a friend. This tadpole was shipped to the pet store accidentally with some fish and she's taking it home with her. It's about 2-2.5 inches long.

I will find my frog!

Do you know where to buy a light-sensitive toy frog-in-a-box very much like this? It looks like this: http://imgur.com/a/8Vc5V and sounds like this: https://soundcloud.com/moonmilk/electro-frog Matching the sound is more important than matching the look. Seems like something found in a dollar store or particularly junky toy store.

Questions about Frogs in my Pond

I have frogs in my UK (Southampton) Pond! A friend took a picture and they look like this. I think they look like pool frogs, not common frogs, which I would love to get confirmed. So, questions. Is the Pool Frog hypothesis feasible? Will the huge quantity of weeds on top of the pond harm them at all? They can't seem to easily leave the pond (there is a rocky overhang which they can't navigate), is there a way to help them, or is it even a problem at all? Finally, is there anything I can do to make their stay in my garden safer for them? I'd rather avoid disturbing them too much, but I would like to encourage future frogs.

Help me find a children's book, frog and dragon image.

Help me find a children's book. All I remember is the cover image, there's a frog standing up on two legs, holding a sword or a spear, beside a dragons tail that has been cut into sections. I remember the sections showing the bone, cut sort of like a sliced loaf of bread. [more inside]

A frog in a water nest?

On a hike in East Granby, CT, my friend came across this. Its a frog sitting in a fluffy nest sitting on top of a swampy pond. I really have nothing else to say other than is this normal frog behavior?

What to do about a frog?

Whilst spring cleaning the large light well in front of my house (inner London UK) I came across a 2½ inch frog perched atop some leaf litter. I have no idea how long it has been there or how it got there but it looks healthy enough. I am a little concerned as to its future though. It is a barren environment with a concrete floor, an adjacent coal store, glazed brick on the head hight walls, a mesh covered drain, the aforementioned leaf litter and a few potted ferns. Should I leave it where it is and keep it damp over the summer or move it to the small but leafy back garden where he will have the neighbours cat to contend with?

Can anyone help me find a long lost news article on bullfrogs?

Did the State of Oregon, the Federal Government, or any local agencies ever stock bullfrogs in ponds and lakes around Oregon? I swear I read a news article online in the last year that said such a thing happened (by ODFW? until the 1990's)?, but I cannot for the life of me find any reference to it or to get to the bottom of bullfrog stocking question.
