Large Male Bull Frog March 2013

It took some sharp eyes to spot this bull frog that was almost entirely concealed by leaves and pine needles. It snuggled down in the mud because the previous night had near freezing temperatures and frogs don’t have fur to keep them warm. It was discovered by Mrs. Lee and her 1st grade class not far from the vernal pools at Elms. I think the students were surprised by the size of him.
