What are we looking at, green muck? Look closely, there’s a prince in there somewhere! Can you find him?
There he is! This little guy is about 3-4 inches long. Now I’m not really sure if this is a green frog or an American bullfrog. The pictures in my, Amphibians & Reptiles of the North Woods book, looks almost the same! I did hear the sounds of a green frog call right before I reached the pond. Green frogs sound like someone plucking one string on a banjo. But this frog’s ear (that circle next to the eye) doesn’t appear to be larger than his eye, the sure sign of a green frog. On the other hand, he is small. Green frogs are 2.75 to 3.5 inches long and a bullfrog is 3.5 to 6 inches long. Hmmmmm.
Here’s another one! These frogs were brave. Many others were too chicken to stick around, making a loud “yelp” before diving underwater in an attempt to escape from mad nature photo taking woman!
