Male bullfrogs are territorial and defend their home turf by calling out to warn intruders. If that doesn't work, a shoving or wrestling match may follow!
From May to July the male bullfrog's deep "bur-rum"
call attracts females, who lay eggs in large, jelly-like masses that
can measure a yard across. Smaller males that cannot compete with large
males for territories have evolved a trick. They hide out near the large
calling male and intercept females attracted to the big male. By this
strategy, the small males are able to occasionally mate and pass on
Bullfrogs themselves are eaten by birds, turtles, raccoons and snakes. Humans also have developed a taste for bullfrogs -- you might even see bullfrog legs on a restaurant menu.
