Bull Frog

Rana catesbeiana

Description:

Bullfrogs are the largest frog in North America. Adults vary in size depending on where they live, but they can reach more than 8 inches long and weigh several pounds. Bullfrog color runs from green to brown, usually with numerous dark splotches on the back. The throat of adult males is yellowish, and the belly is yellow or white. The exposed eardrums, or tympanums, are very large in bullfrogs. In males, the tympanums are larger than the eyes, while in females they are about the same size as the eyes. The eyes of adults are gold in color, and a distinct fold of skin extends from the eye around the ear. The front toes of adults lack webbing, while the toes of the hind feet are fully webbed.

Habitat:

Found in a wetland area, near a large farm, and very near a small subdivision.

Thank you so much for the comments, RobBielawski, renooceanman, and Telse. I strive to make what some call ordinary, look extraordinary. I want to get someone who might not look twice at a bird, animal, or reptile, to stop, pause and enjoy my efforts, and then perhaps think more about the world around them, and the creatures that live with us.

This was a big one. I suspect he was at least 6inches in size ( 15 plus cm. ) All three photos are of the same frog. He was on land when I first spotted him. I was quiet and still and sitting but I moved enough and with one long jump he was in the water. Thanks for asking Team Brinez 1

Thanks Gerardo, and thanks as well Ceherzog. Ceherzog, Pros get paid for their efforts. I might be good at what I do, but it is not something I get paid even a small amount to do. If accolades could be turned in to money, I suppose I would be quite well off.
