awesome job you are correct.

I love your photos and evidence great job!

Both of your photos are clear and very detailed. The one in the water clearly shows the "cross" on the peeper's back. I noticed that the peeper is missing one of its back feet - how do you think that happened?I noticed the drawing of the salamander- did you see a spotted salamander on your visit?

No, we did not see any salamanders on our trip. I drew it before, we were hoping to.

Nice identification. It is definitely a spring peeper. The cross on the back is diagnostic and where they derive their scientific species name "crucifer". One note, it is the males that get the dark throats during the breeding season from calling.

thanks for letting me know about the neacks
