I think this belongs to a large toad, this is my box turtle pond. There's been a new pile every morning for about a week. I think it must be a raccoon, as I have seen this poop at the foot of the raccoon tree. Or so I think. My neighbor says it's a frog, but there not water in that pond everyday. And I don't want strange poop around my own animals

I freakin knew you would want poop shots!!! yes and no, I took pictures just for you. I am having my usual computer problems and that computer with the poop pictures just for you won't download the pictures here. Pisses me off so bad as I was planning on springing those pictures on you. Darn! That was gonna be fun. They are black as sin too. The poop that is.The big problem I guess is TF wants a password from that computer, and the computer can't remember and neither can I. lol

I think if you post the pics in a more general section of the forum, we should have at least a few members on the forum who could at least help narrow it down.

A title like Mystery Animal Poop would get plenty of attention, but I'm sure there are more creative titles out there. ;)

I'm betting on opposum, and if it is, be very hygienic with it. I can't remember the exact disease, but humans can get it.

Opposum poop in my box turtle water almost every night.

From an opossum ...leptospirosis- a bacterial disease that starts off with flu-like symptoms. If left untreated, leptospirosis will cause kidney damage, menigitis, liver failure, and respiratory complications. The disease is transmitted through the urine and feces.

Raccoons are the primary host of Baylisascaris procyonis, a roundworm that can be harmful to people. Roundworm eggs are passed in the feces of infected raccoons, and people become infected by ingesting eggs

Google is full of crap today?
