Bullfrog

With a booming call like a bullís, he beckons females during warm evenings at the wetlands bridge. Our largest frog is usually green or grayish brown with brown spots and large circular eardrums on either side of the head. These territorial carnivores pounce upon insects, crayfish, other frogs - even small birds, snakes, and mice.
