My younger sister's swimming pool was left outside and it filled up with rain water after a particularly torrential downpour we had recently. When I came over to visit and we were going to dump all the water out, the pool was filled with little tadpoles! We weren't sure what kind they were, but they kept mosquitos and other pests at bay by eating the larvae. Eventually they all grew up and became frogs, with most of them turning out to be these! Now they are typically sitting near the porch light eating up all the moths and other insects of that nature. You can hear them singing at night (At least I think it's them; It could be the other type of frog we have yet to identify that also had tadpoles in the pool). Nonetheless, it was very interesting to see them grow from babies to frogs and they are some of the greatest pest control you could ask for! They are also nice to see sitting around. I actually personally owned one of these frogs when I was younger as well, but it didn't live long...It was caught from the wild though, so this could be attributed to many reasons. I would suggest getting one from a pet store if you want to own it as a pet.
