My dh and I were at WDW June 1-6 2007 and the first night we were there, it was the beginning of tropical storm Barry, it was pouring for the first two days and there were the tiniest little frogs I have ever seen, I took a picture with my cell phone but I don't know how to get it on to here, they were so cute and so little, I tried to catch one and take it home to show my kids but I couldn't find them once it stopped raining.

We have always seen little rabbits in Epcot, over by Mission Space, in the little gardens they have in the pathways, and in Magic Kingdom. Once we were leaving Mk for the day and walking up the path to where you load the resort buses and a squirrel shot out from the grassy area and ran across my foot, it like to have scared the crap out of me. Not to mention having our plates dive bombed by birds in Frontierland.

We saw these little frogs too. This one was in the planter under the Tower of Terror Sign.

Sorry the frog picture is so big, I thought I figured out how to make my pictures smaller.

This little guy was hanging out by LeCellier. He was very friendly, a little girl even picked him up even though the CM told her it would not be a good idea.

That day a CM had security come and talk to a few guest that were throwing him Turkey legs. He was of nice size and Thought they would have just relocated but if he was use to having his food brought to him he would find his way back.

We have seen a few over by WWoS as well whe we would play Paintball and one was at BCV in the canal last trip but I didn't have the camera with me that day.

It's sad the people caused him an early dimise if that was the case.

And we liked having the Anoles around so much DD had a few of them for several years here at the House. I just couldn't find any Photos .

I didnt snap a pic but last April I saw a very larger soft shell turtle in the pond at Epcot nearest to the aquarium. probably as big as a hub cap- good size for a soft shell. I also have some duckling pictures somewhere from April of 06

I think if they (the feral cats) were a problem, it wouldn't be too difficult to have them caught and removed.

I'm thinking (hoping) they are just sort of considered more "wildlife" at the Poly.

Its interesting to note that at Disneyland, very early on, the Castle was just a shell.
Inside the "shell," over time, many feral cats moved right in.

Mr. Disney (Walt was still very much involved with the park) finally decided to build a "token attraction" (walk-thru) inside the castle (so many guests wanted to go inside,) so they had to capture all of those cats and get them out of the park.

Walt (as the story goes) made sure the cats (the first residents of a Disney Castle) were not harmed.

When we stayed at ASMO in 2001 there were snails everywhere! We really had to watch where we walked cause they were all over the pathways. When other people who weren't as careful would walk by you could hear crunching! Yuck.

I didn't get any photos of them, but there are several different colors of cats who frequent the area.
Here they are. They're adorable (but then I'm a cat-lover):
