Rana clamitans (green frog)

Can you tell my how long the green frog (rana clamitans) usually lives? What happens to them in the winter? The reason I'm asking is, I have a 100 gallon plastic lined goldfish pond which has become home to 5 or 6 of these frogs, and I'm not sure what will happen to them in this artificial environment over the winter. Should I move them to a "real" pond?

This is a difficult question to answer without knowing a bit more about your specific pond and the freeze depth in your area. I would like to direct you to a good website that deals with this topic, check out Robynís frog and toad information page to determine what you need to consider.
