Green Frogs

Several Green Frogs (Lithobates clamitans) were spotted at the “Amphibian Pool,” located behind the Visitor Center at Huntley Meadows Park. These individuals may be Bronze Frogs, a subspecies of Green Frog.

The first photo shows two frogs: the one on the upper-right might be a male; the one on the lower-left is probably a female.

Males also possess a larger tympanum and stouter forelegs and thumbs than females. Source Credit: Green Frog, Virginia Herpetological Society.

The next individual is probably another male. The green aquatic plant is duckweed. Duckweed oxygenates the water and provides shelter for animals like frogs.
