Worldwide, amphibians are in peril. Some of the reasons include habitat destruction, pollution and diseases. It is up to all of us to do our part to reduce pollution and to plant areas in our yards that will provide favorable habitat for this important part of the food chain.

Green Tree Frog (Hyla cinera) by lalagniappe on Zazzle

The colorful and cute Green Tree Frog is the Louisiana State Amphibian. (Ha, I bet you thought it was the Bullfrog!) The calls of these small frogs can be heard in wetlands, forests and backyards throughout Louisiana.

Bullfrogs are the largest frog in Louisiana. Even their tadpoles are enormous. They will eat just about anything that they can fit into their large mouths. Their deep jug-o-rum bass calls can be heard throughout the wetlands during the warm seasons of the year.

This is the frog whose legs are most commonly used in Cajun and Creole recipes like fried frog legs.

While this photo was labeled male and female frog in amplexus, you can see by the long necklace-like strand of eggs that these two are members of the toad family. Frogs lay eggs in clumps.
