Today is the twenty-fifth day of the April A to Z Challenge. I will be writing about different frog species based on their latin species names! See the introduction here.
Lithobates yavapaiensis – Lowland Leopard Frog
The L. yavapaiensis is a frog that is found in a small portion of Mexico, CA, NV, AR & NM. Populations are typically found in streams, ponds and river pools.
This frog has a really cool call consisting of many series of short notes. The call will last between 3-8 minutes.
The lowland leopard frog is listed as Least Concern by the IUCN red list, however it is seen as a sensitive species and is listed as a species of concern in Arizona. It is threatened by non-native fishes and the American bullfrog.
