Small frogs in the grass

Small frog

I believe that this is a small wood frog. Prof. Berven of Oakland University has been studying the population dynamics of the frogs in the pond next to the caretaker's cottage for the past 20+ years. Maybe this little guy will make it into his survey next year... The populations of amphibians in the frog pond don't seem to be on the decline, and based on the number of these guys roaming around in the tall grass, I hope they won't be declining in the forest in the future.

  1. Ooh - it's so small! Am I seeing this right? Maybe the size of half a dime?? Is that how big it will stay, or is this a baby? Wow!
