Northern Crawfish Frog
A large frog with a light ground color and numerous, closely set dark spots. The head is disproportionately large. A prominent fold extends along each side of the back from the eye to the thigh. Ground color varies from light tan to light gray; the dark spots may be dark brown, gray or nearly black and are sometimes edged in white. A fine network or spotting of dark pigment is usually present between the dark spots. The belly is white. The call is a deep, loud, snoring “gwwaaa.” A group of calling males sounds like pigs at feeding time.
