Medium-sized 5-9 cm frog. Green to light brown in colour. Dark brown or black roundish spots, outlined in yellow, scattered on back and side. White line on upper lip is usually quite noticeable.
The Leopard Frog is found in lakes, grassy ponds, marshes and wet meadows.
Description of call: A series of chortles and chuckles, followed by wet hands rubbing a balloon, or a long snore followed by a chuckling call; "chuck, chuck, chuck", Females arrive at the breeding ponds approximately one week after the males start calling. Eggs are laid a week later and are attached to submerged vegetation or are occasionally laid on the bottom of the pond. After hatching, the tadpoles take between 10 to 13 weeks to transform into froglets. By September the froglets have doubled in weight and are about 5 cm long. They will hibernate in deep pools for the winter, and can sometimes be seen on the surface mud under the water. Saw these frogs EVERYWHERE in the Northern Bruce Peninsula. Took at least 5 pictures in five different locations.
