Oooh, tempting. But I'd get into trouble for introducing potentially invasive non-natives.

Also, I worked hard for that toad! Saw a frog last night and now I'm practically extatic!

The animals that lived there learned to adapt to the environment that was left to them, hence we have out-of-control populations of white-tailed deer snacking on expensive landscaping, raccoons raiding neighborhood garbage cans, and foxes after the vermin that are also after our garbage. Of late my area has also had visits from coyotes and (gulp!) black bears. I've been spared the latter two. So far.
Amazing they can hold on with so little wild places left to them.
