I plopped a soggy clump on the table and started whacking on it when a stowaway made me jump back.
It was a Leopard Frog with a body about three-inches long. We all admired it.
The frog was surprisingly still maybe because Leopard Frogs are generally nocturnal. We checked it for injuries because I thought perhaps I had cut its leg.
However the frog seemed fine and made a hearty jump to freedom when it was taken back to the ditch.
