Green Frog (Rana clamitans)

It has been a long time since my last post!  I hope to add more discoveries to this blog over the summer.  My son Dylan spotted this frog popping its head out of the water on our hike today.  I don’t know much about amphibians and had a tough time identifying it.  There are not many frog options for Long Island, and I was skeptical about the Green frog identification.  It turns out that Green frogs aren’t always green.  They range from green to brown to blue!  They are easy to identify in the wild because they have those “lines” running from their eyes to their back.
