Western Chorus Frog
This is a small species, usually under 1.5 inches with smooth skin in shades of greenish-gray, olive, red or brown with 3 stripes extending down on the entire dorsal side.
These frogs have toes that are small and round without pads and only a bit of webbing. They live in freshwater areas like marshes, grassy pools and river swamps in mountains or prairies.
This species is rarely ever seen because they are secretive and nocturnal but they can be found from time to time on warm nights when they surface to call for a mate. Their diet consists of arthropods and small invertebrates such as flies, ants, mosquitoes, beetles, caterpillars, spiders and grasshoppers.
