Have you heard those deafening, bell-like sounds coming from a pond or wetland in the spring? Even tried to find the creatures making them and come up blank, wondering how something with such a BIG sound could remain unseen?
Have you seen a frog called a spring peeper that is so small it can sit on the end of your finger or picked out a gray tree frog despite its perfect camouflage? Can you identify their calls? Do you know how they makes their song, where they spend most of their time or how they survive the winter? (Hint: They don’t fly south!) Did you know not all frogs say “ribbit, ribbit,” or that even toads begin their lives in the water? Do you know how a toad differs from a frog?
Maybe you’ve visited a pond or wetland and noticed clear, jelly-like masses in the water filled with black dots. Ever wonder about those? Maybe you’ve guessed they are eggs…How long before they hatch? What do these eggs feel like? Do the adults care for them? Does anyone eat them?
