Spotting

Description:

This little one looked maybe four or five inches long and looked like they had risen right out of the sand (although I didn't actually see that happen!) There may be no way to tell the species for the sand on their back, but I can see some spotting on the lower leg, at least.

Habitat:

In the waters/on the shoreline of the Arkansas river as the sun was going down. It was hot and humid, and the water was warm.

Notes:

My guess when first looking around was maybe a lightly colored Acris crepitans, but I'm really inexperienced with frogs and toads. Seems like a lot of them vary in pattern/color and we have a lot in AR.
