    when I arrived at work this morning, I found something on the front of my new MS 75D. Hope our cars are not dangerous to wildlife. BTW, I was not using auto steer on my way to work.

    Was it still alive or did it croak?

    After that 1/2 hour ride on the highway (65 - 70 mph) I was surprised that after I extricated it, that he was still alive. I had to reach in the vent area and push back the black plastic sheet as the frog got wedged there.

    Found a new pond for him.

    He was looking for the engine and was shocked when he couldn't find one.

    Or maybe this is the rumored pedestrian warning signal that's going into new Teslas? Ribbit... ribbit... ribbit...

    Can other new Model S/X owners please check your cars to see if there's a frog installed in the front bumper? If so, I certainly hope they don't do the same on the Model 3 or else I may have to cancel my reservation. Not only are they nasty little creatures (leaving slime all over the beautiful paint job), it'll add unnecessary complexity to the car (causing delays) and good looking finding a reliable supplier for 400,000 frogs (unless Tesla opts to breed them in-house). Moreover, it's cruel treatment of living beings, so I hope Tesla at least offers a vegan option (a froganhorn?).

    I always thought that Frogger was just a videogame.
