Leopard Frog...

According to my books, this is a Southern Leopard Frog. Found this under some plywood that is next to this little 20 gallon pond I have. Kind of interesting, I believe I had a LOT of tree frogs hatch out of that pond and it's only 20 gallons. Someday, I'll have a REAL pond.

He's an odd lookin' little bugger! How big is he? (It's kinda hard to tell from the pic.)

what do you find weird about it? The narrow snout? If I see it again, I can try to get a picture from another angle. The leopard frog is quite a common sight in many states... chances are you've seen them before, hopping across streets and such.

Those little vein/line things on its back are weird.

He's fat in the body and skinny in the nose. I guess that's why he's odd looking. I don't think I've ever seen one before.

there's a few types of frogs that have those lines on them... and plenty that have a skinny nose like that. I think you girls just don't pay that much attention to frogs :P

Why should we? We have more interesting things to pay attention to. ;)

I pay attention to frogs! Like at a cc meet I found a frog and named it Herman, then I showed it to our whole team and released it back "into the wild!"
