Green Frog

A mid-sized species of frog native to the eastern part of Canada. It lives near shallow ponds, lakes, rivers and swamps, mostly in the water.

How to Identify?

Green frogs look very similar to Bullfrogs. I identify green frogs by looking at the crest which starts behind the eyes and which runs in case of the Green frogs along the side until the end of the back.

We combine physical characterics and behavior patterns with location and seasonal aspects to identify species.

Where & When to Spot?

Can be seen from spring to autumn near water although difficult to spot outside of the mating season in spring when you can find them following their calls. I saw my first Green frog in Park Boisé des Douzes, St. Hyacinthe.

With each photo, we store date and geo-location providing us data about location and season of observation. We also use a tracking utility to save observations in the field when there was no opportunity to take a good shot.

Anything to add, to correct?
