Green Frog

Rana clamitans


Although called the Green Frog, their color is highly variable ranging from green to tan to brown. The upper lip and head are usually green though. Some dark spots are present on the legs. Dorsolateral fold is present but only extends to the midbody.


Spotted in a swampy, marsh habitat.


A study by Jenssen and Klimstra (1966) reported that green frogs in southern Illinois (spotting location is in southern Illinois) eat beetles, spiders, millipedes, snails, true bugs and flies.
