Southern Leopard Frog
Want to hear a dirty joke?
The white horse fell in the mud.
Interesting Fact: This frog lives in many types of shallow freshwater habitat and sometimes in slightly brackish water. It is usually found close to water but it can stay on dry land for long periods of time. During warmer months it moves away from the water for most of the time. It is mostly nocturnal, but it can be active during the day and the night, especially during rainfall. It breeds in the winter and spring, and sometimes in the fall; heavy periods of rainfall trigger breeding. The egg mass is connected to aquatic vegetation. It typically nests communally in cooler weather, and individually in warmer weather. Eggs hatch in 4 days to nearly two weeks. The tadpoles take 50 to 75 days to develop to adulthood.

Nice photo. I haven’t seen leopard frogs around here in years. I think the bullfrogs ate the leopard frogs the herons and cranes did get.
I definitely agree, this is the first time I came across one. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
