Carpy's crickets gone wild post inspired this idea. What are some of your favorite/funniest/scariest "wild" animal stories. (I know we love our pets but let's talk about those critters that may not be as near and dear to our hearts).
Generally speaking, I'm a giant coward with anything smaller than a cat. When we first moved into our house years ago we had trees all around it, apple trees right up to the back porch and as a result we had tree frogs EVERYWHERE. They would get in the bbq and jump at you when you would open the lid and would even hide in the window tracks INSIDE the house if you left a door open too long or a screen wasn't in all the way. That first year in the house was a twitchy one for me. I learned to appreciate them as long as they were outside and not jumping anywhere.
Last summer we had about three little tree frogs take up residence in my Hens and chicks right on the front porch. One hot summer day I was showing my parents that they like to hid in the plant. If I sprayed the plant with the hose they would come out of hiding. Well one jumped right out of the plant onto the hot driveway and I paniced worried that it was going to burn it's little feet. I quickly turned the hose to hose down the driveway and in my panic I ended up hosing my father down. :|
