Northern Leopard Frog

A large frog native to the Montreal area. Light brown or green with large dark circular spots. Found in ponds, along rivers and lakes in spring while in summer they move to grassy plans.

How to Identify?

The circular dark brown spots are a distinctive characteristics.

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

Where & When to Spot?

In spring during the mating season in ponds, later in grassy areas along ponds, rivers and lakes.

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?
