Artist's Description

Posting a few frog images for the “Year of the Frog” challenge… This one is a typical species found in my area of Connecticut summer 2008… Nikon D60
BULLFROG (Rana catesbeiana)
The Bullfrog is our largest frog. They inhabitant ponds and lakes where they very often become the kings and queens of their domain.
~These large amphibians have been known to eat everything from small birds to other frogs. ~Their tadpoles grow very large and can reach the size of a small egg. They can sometimes take up to three years to develop. The eggs are laid by the thousands in a thin sheet on the surface of the water.
~Read the Green Frog account to learn how to tell it from a Bullfrog. To determine if either of those species is a male or female, have a look at the ears, or tympanic membranes. These are the large discs located behind the eyes. If the disc is larger than the eye, it is a male. If it is the same size or smaller, it’s a female. One way to remember is MALE – “Males Are Large Eared”. You can also look at the throats. In the males they are yellow, in the females, white. This also goes for the Green Frogs.
~Bullfrogs hibernate under the water and emerge in the spring. Their call, the deep, basso “JUG-O-RUM” can be heard from a great distance into the late summer.
