Southern Leopard Frog
A medium-sized frog with a variable number of rounded or oblong spots on the back. The two folds along the sides of the back are narrow and distinctly raised, yellow or tan, and extend continuously to the groin. The head appears long and the snout is pointed. Overall color is green, greenish brown, or light brown with some green on the back. Dark markings on the hind legs appear as broken bars or elongated spots. There is usually no dark spot on the snout. A white line is present along the upper lip. The center of the tympanum usually has a distinct white spot. Call is a series of abrupt, chucklelike “quacking” sounds, repeated at a rate of 12 pulses per second. Tadpoles are 1¾-2¼ inches in total length and olive-gray with faint gray markings on body and tail.
