If it was on a beach or sand dune, I reckon it'd be a crab-hole but since it's in my backyard it can't be. So who dug this hole?

You go girl! Anytime you want some hide time, give me a bell ;-) There's been no suspicious holes since, though so you'd have been carted away by the mozzies for nothing :-(

Yeah, you would have to set yourself up commando style in some sort of hide before dark ;) Lie down out there with cammoflage over you and a torch to hand to shine when you hear something!

My dogs help me with the toads - they kind've point (they've learned not to mouthe them over the years as it requires me flushing their mouth out with the hose!).

Bandicoot sounds more like it, really ... not easy to spot from the photo, but on a slightly different angle you can see two parallel depressions as though something was dragging its feet as in digging. Anyway the hole only went 3 inches in ... there are crickets out there strumming away at night so maybe the digger was after one of those. Sneaking out at night ... whatever-it-is including frogs and toads scurry off at a rate of knots with me being none the wiser.

lol I've frozen about 12 over the last few nights. Catch them in plastic bags and wrap them humanely in a towel before putting in the freezer and tossing the next day. Someone I know composts them.

Could it be a bandicoot hole Elaine? Doesn't look like something a toad would do - they tend to just bury themselves. Maybe you need to sneak out at night and try to see what it is.

Could it be a toad? I think I am having a toad plague atm.... .. If you're my neighbour you probably had heard me screamed on several occasions over the last week... like finding about 10 toads sitting in my seedling pots jumping away when I approached to water them at night after work. Finding a big toad swimming in my watering can when I was about to pick it up to do some watering. Finding a big toad sitting the bottom of the bucket where the sweet potato snips are kept... Finding toads when I make a hole in the mulch to put in seeds.. Gosh, they're EVERYWHERE!! What can I do???
