Frog Websites/Trying to Identify Our Frog

I thought I would share some of the frog identification pages I found while trying to identify the frog that Allyson saved from our friend's car.

Amphiaweb: From this page, you can click on your geographic area to find out what kinds of amphibians live there. Lots of pictures here.

FROGLAND: This is a fun frog site with tons of information. Go to their Species Caresheets page to learn how to care for specific breeds, including breeds found in the wild. This site has just about everything you could possibly want if you are looking for frog info, even links to clipart and interactive frog games! Highly recommended if you have a frog-loving child in your home.

eNature: Can't forget this one! Check out their field guides, which are searchable by region. You can even sign up for a free Wildlife List to keep track of animals and plants you see in your backyard or local area. Add species with notes about where you found them - it's basically your own online nature journal.

Now for more pics of our frog. Click on the picture for a larger image.


It's hard to tell positively for us because it seems to be a young frog, but we still think that it's a bullfrog. This makes a difference because if it's a bullfrog, then we have to make sure that we return it to a habitat that has bullfrogs - they get huge and eat anything they can fit in their mouths, including other frogs and even small mammals like mice. Crazy! I'm going to call a local nature center to see if they can help with this.

Thanks for reading. I'm still looking for a positive ID for this frog if anyone knows.

  1. Thank you so much for your input. I appreciate it. I will look into the different things you said. I forgot Truth Quest was about. I did look at that last year and thought it was neat. Thanks.
