That's an American Bullfrog. They are an invasive species and will outcompete or eat all other species in your pond over time except for bass which are equipped to compete. Then they become cannibals.

Opposite end of the scale. You want to eradicate invasives. They will outcompete endangered species and wipe them out completely. Here in CA the bullfrog was introduced to compete in the Calavaras Jumping Frog contest immortalized by Mark Twain. Now they are found throughout the state. I think there have been other frogs introduced because of the jumping frog contest as well, like the Goliath Frog from Africa.

Now I know where the French (Frogs) got the idea for their camouflage.
