Do you get bullfrogs in your area?

I thought about that! Is it possible it's a juvenile?

It's a bullfrog. They're now somewhat common in western WA, at least in places. Green frogs are more common around Vancouver BC, and have long dorsolateral ridges which the bullfrogs lack.

Its a female bullfrog.

Extremely invasive, killing off the Oregon spotted frog from Oregon and Washington. I used to actually like this species, heh, not anymore. Once I found out how destructive they really are.
Anyway, its probably traveling from some nearby pond, they do that sometimes to look for new ponds to settle in. -Seth
