Northern Cricket Frog

Acris crepitans


A small (less than an inch) warty frog that exhibits a variety of colors. One identifying characteristic of Northern (or Blanchard's) Cricket Frogs is a dark colored triangle shape between the eyes, which can be seen faintly in the 2nd photo.


Found this one on my back deck. They are usually found near streams and ponds. (there is a pond about 20 yards away from my deck)


These little frogs jump all over the place, erratically in every direction when approached.
