Crawfish Frog (Lithobates areolatus) - Endangered
Description: 2¼ - 4 inches. Crawfish Frogs are covered in closely packed dark blotches with a light border around each one. The color of the blotches may match the color of the skin between them, making the frog appear to just have white rings. The belly is white, and male Crawfish Frogs may have yellow or green coloring in the groin area under the legs.
Similar Species: Northern Leopard Frogs, Southern Leopard Frogs, Plains Leopard Frogs, and Pickerel Frogs, all have a light colored line on the upper lips, rather than the marbled pattern seen on the lips of Crawfish Frogs.
