Not sure if this would belong in Pet Stories.

I was about to chastise DH for not flushing the toilet, when suddenly, the floating thing in it started to climb up the side of the bowl! We had a frog about the size of an Oreo in our toilet! I told DH to rescue it, but oh, no, he REALLY had to get to work, and out the door he went. Lucky for him, he came back in with a rubber glove. Unfortunately for the frog, it swam a lap around the bowl, then disappeared down the hole. DH disappeared too.

I was going to leave the lid down, and rescue it later, but had to leave for work myself. Against my better judgment, I flushed it.

RIP, frog.

I have heard stories of snakes and rats coming up through the sewer system, but a frog? We have a septic tank. Anyone else ever had something like this happen?

Actually, it was a very pretty frog, I hated to send it to its demise. Hopefully no more froglets are waiting to emerge from the commode. I have no problem with amphibians and reptiles, but prefer them in their natural habitats.

Don't be too grossed out. Think about what the frog has to deal with...
