Post Need to know about Atlanta!!!!! Please

Hello:
We live NE(upstate NY) right now but we'll be moving to Atlanta very soon but I am trying to research as much as I can about everything.
One of the things is that NE more of the wild animals we see here are deers,squirrels,and other precious creatures.
My question is are there frogs in Atlanta? Please don't laugh. I know the south the weather is mild hot and it rains quite often. I don't mind if there's are frogs in the green parts where people don't see them, but if they are running around when one takes the dog to walk outside,or when one plays with her child in the backyard? that's what I mean.
What are your thoughts?
Thanks

Yes there are frogs, you may sometimes see them as road kill, sometimes hopping into the grass, near creeks or swamps. but they dont bite, just don't let them pee on you.

We see frogs hopping all over the place after a rain. I think it's rather funny, and I try not to hit them. They like being able to take a field trip, I think.

Frogs, snakes, got everything. Frogs usually hang out near water though. What we do have are a lot of Foxes and Coyotes around here. Lot of them in Buckhead.

I have spent many a summer in upstate New York growing up. Many of those summers my cousins and I would catch frogs, tadpoles, fish, etc. Where do you live where there are no frogs??? The ones here don't attack, I promise.
