|A Northern Leopard Frog sits on a rock beside our small pond. Just as his name suggests, he's easy to identify because of all of those leopard spots.|
|The spot in the middle of the frog's nose helps differentiate a Northern Leopard Frog from a Southern Leopard frog. Northern Leopards have a spot. Southerns don't.|
|Will he stay or will he go now? Leopard frogs can amble far and wide, up to a mile away from water, which is how he gets his nickname, Meadow Frog or Grass Frog. They are not afraid to hang out in the grass.|
