Can frogs feel pain?

I just found out that a frog had been caught under my lawnmower and killed. I feel awful.

We should now call you Mystic Andy, in touch with ‘the other side‘.
You’ve been called worse

On the other hand, lots of ants and small creatures on the lawn were happy because of a good meal. :)

Life feeds on other life. I always remind myself it when I see some animal dying in the wild - a beautiful butterfly is gone, but a bird gets a meal.

The weirdest thing about this thread is I think actually Andy has been possessed - if you go back to post#6 you will see he made an off-topic attempt at humour, whereas he never does that and always tells other people off for doing so ... so theory is Andy has been done away with (swapped?) or is currently possessed by a more light-hearted person with a sense of humour.

What do you reckon??
