To Florida?? Hahahaha My ponds are void of koi as of this year thanks to racoons. It became a haven for the Leopard Toads. I wonder where they go or what they do in the cold?? One of the pumps malfunctioned and the pond is nearly drained. I see no sign of any toads or frogs.

They hibernate. Most North American species of frogs hibernate underwater. Toads, and a few species of frogs, hibernate in burrows on land.
