It depends mostly on your yard. Is there enough shelter from predators? Do you have a dog? Are there other frogs around?

Frogs can turn dark when the surroundings are dark or humid or if the temperature is low. Frogs in general are harmless. You can only get in trouble with a few species, such as the pickerel frog if you ingest poison that they release from their skin when they are threatened or harmed. Leave the frog alone and you will be completely safe. There are some, called poison dart frogs, that have potent poison, but these species are only native to Central and South America. Even then, they are harmless if you leave them alone and don't touch them.

This is too difficult to answer without a photo to identify exactly what species and type of frog it is. There are thousands of species of frogs and toads. Some are poisonous, some are not. A frog or toad is not going to attach a human. It n-e-v-e-r happens. Leaving it alone and letting it do whatever it wants to do is your best option. Observe it if you want but don't touch or handle it and keep a safe distance from it.
