Virginia enjoys her cottage in the NH woods near a lake. It's a beautiful area that attracts weekenders and summer folk.

Let's Identify Frogs and Toads

I keep finding different kinds of frogs and toads as I walk through the woods to the pond. It's summer in New Hampshire and I hear the chug-a-lug sound of a bullfrog.

Let's learn the names of these frogs and toads. I have lots of photos, including the one I took yesterday of a frog gulping down a crawfish. I'll give you a chance to guess the name. Don't be mislead by what the person right above you guessed. They might be wrong.

Note the Ridge on the Back of This Frog - It Is Different from the Bull Frog Above

I have this one on my nature shelf at the cabin. It's next to the wildflower identifier and the insect guide. I like to know the names of things I see on my walks in the New Hampshire woods.

      I have no idea what these little frogs are - so very different from my usual sight of tree frogs

      What a fun resource for encouraging research into local frogs. I added a link to my Frog Unit Study here on Squidoo and posted a link on my Frog Themed Teaching Activities page on Facebook.

      Squid Angel Blessed!
