Young male (ear drum approximately twice the size of the eye) green frog with striations along chin. Approximately 5 cm SVL (snout vent length.)
Forest edge along the rear of my yard with a few scattered pines, plenty of leaf litter and some container ponds landscaped with native plants.
his species gets almost as big as the American Bullfrog and looks very similar but has two dorsolateral folds along the back that distinguishes it from the bullfrog. Males have a call that sounds like plucking a banjo string and an alarm call that sounds like a high-pitched squeak.
