A big part of the summer involves taking a dip in a swimming pool. Everyone who owns a pool knows that there can be the unfortunate occasion when a small animal gets into the water, can’t figure out how to get out, and ends up drowning.
This often happens to lizards, rodents, amphibians, and all sorts of animals. In order to try and prevent these accidents, Wildlife Biologist Rich Mason has created an invention called the FrogLog.
It’s small, simple, and might do wonders in saving backyard wildlife. It will also save you some time on pool maintenance.
Mason got a call from a friend in June of 2004 after they had just installed an in-ground swimming pool.
He wrote on his official website that frogs had been dying in the neighboring pool in the wooded lot near Baltimore, Maryland.
Mason was troubled at this news and decided to create some sort of raft device that could possibly help them escape.
Warm weather means swimming pool season, but it also means frog season. Mason’s invention will not only save animals lives but it will save you the trouble of having to fish critters from your pool.
