Consider these little green critters; they do big things.
They weigh less than a pound, in most cases much less, and they make few sounds. Yet frogs, toads, salamanders, turtles, and snakes have a big presence in the landscape.
Part of their impact has to do with their diverse and interesting diets, according to environmental scientist and herpetologist Dennis Quinn from Plantsville. (www.CTHerpetology.com) Consider, for instance, that some are hungry for mosquitoes and others love to snack on tick-carrying rodents.
