haha. that's pretty big, even for a big frog. rabbits dont even poop that big. in the top left picture, there looks like there could be nuts or seeds.

maybe it's a small night time animal that may be curious about your garden. raccoon?

RE: Is this frog-poo? (in reply to val

ok, i just did some research on raccoon poop....

"You will rarely witness raccoons in the act because they are nocturnal. The only sign of their presence is a tattered lawn with occasional feces lying round."

"Observe the contents of the feces. Poorly digested seeds and peelings of seasonal fruits are usually present. Insects, such as grasshoppers and crickets, are apparent if they are abundant in your area."

"Compare the raccoon droppings to that of a medium sized dog. They look much like dog feces: dark, tubular in shape, up to 1/4-inch in diameter and usually appear in well-formed, blunt segments. Older feces may look like dry leaves or a small pile of debris."

"Always use rubber gloves and an N95-rated mask when cleaning raccoon feces."

Hi
try this website:
http://talkto.thefrog.org/index.php?action=vthread&forum=3&topic=14745
could well be frog poo.
There are no raccoons in the Uk. Might be a cat since they are everywhere and attracted to frogs. Also possibly a fox. Though would be surprised if you'd never seen one.

Is an N95 mask the same "bank-robber" style the racoon wears?
(So you can pretend to be just a big racoon)

I'm tempted to say that this thread is a heap of cr*p, but won't.

cheers,

Ron

RE: Is this frog-poo? (in reply to val

Val - Im pretty sure they are hedgehog droppings. We used to have a family them in our garden and the droppings look very similar. The droppings are black(ish) and slightly sticky. (who says i dont know sh1t ) Hedgehogs are creatures of habit and will do a circuit of about a mile every night in search of food and follow pretty much the same route every night.
If the droppings appear in the same place then its probably the same hedgehog. You can easily test this theory by leaving some cheap canned dog food and milk out for them at sunset. Bread and milk is a myth, they are carniverous and are probably eating your frogs! They like slugs, caterpillars, worms etc and you can also leave out bacon rinds, fish etc to attract them. (Dont leave cat food or you will only attract cats). They are noisy eaters. If one gets used to the idea of regular food then it will bring others. Over one summer we edventually attracted a family of 8 hedgehogs to eat in our garden every night and they turned up at the same time every night.

Im a big hedgehog fan BTW. we used to find underweight ones and feed them up for winter. A hedgehog has to be at least 1 kg in weight to survive hibernation. Here is a photo of a young one with some fresh droppings.
