Large brown and tan frog found on the side of the road
Grassy plains near a ditch
Nice spotting. The second and third photos don't show up well; perhaps you could upload them again. Welcome to Project Noah!
And if you want to go to subspecies, yours is the northern crawfish frog: Lithobates areolatus circulosus.
Thanks and i did not know that i will go add scientific names!
Really decorative frog!
Hi Kevin, in order for your frog to go into the proper category, you need to add the scientific name to this. If you leave this as is, it will remain as in unknown spotting which it really is not. Because people call things by different common names only the scientific name can truly be used to put it in its proper category. The scientific name for your frog is :Lithobates areolatus . If you type in the common name in Google it almost always defaults to Wiki first which will give you the scientific name of any spotting you have.
