It is spring and time to look for frogs. Yesterday, my daughter and I went for a nature walk in the woods around our house. During our adventure, we found this frog. It is a cricket frog, Acris crepitans. Cricket frogs are non-climbing tree frog. I’ll be sure to look for their eggs during their breeding season (May through July).
This cricket frog is on a child’s hand.
They vary in color but often have a dark triangle present between the eyes and a Y-shaped stripe on their backs.
