Amphibiorum > Anura > Ranidae
Names in different Languages
|French||Grenouille des bois|
|Spanish||Rana de bosque|
A small, brown frog with a dark eye mask. To a certain extent freeze-tolerant and can breed in vernal pools. One of the first of the local frog species to appear in spring.
How to Identify
The dark eye mask is a distinctive characteristic of this species.
Where When to Spot
My first observation of this species has been a few years back in Parc Nature Pointe aux Prairies early spring in a pool which still was partially frozen. I returned to the same place on several occasions around the same month. In April 2022, I finally encountered them again and recorded a video.
