|This cute little clicker is often found on the ground in the soggy areas around our
Northern and Southern Cricket frogs are easily differentiated by a neat and tidy
stripe near the thigh of the Southern, opposed to the less specific line near the
thigh of the Northern. I remember this by associating the letters. Southern = Smooth,
Northern = No.
Though often mistaken for other tiny critters such as youthful tree frogs, the adult
Cricket Frog exhibits a triangle shape on top of their heads. Look closely and you
can see the triangle on this one.
At certain times in the summer, these little boogers are plentiful and present.
|Ahhh, how I miss the songs of the springpeepers! This post reminded me of when I used to hear them trill at the top of their lungs on cold, early spring nights.|
