the photos really support your answers

IT is good lots of deatales

I would think you would need more evidence,don't get me wrong your evidence is good and it did teach me a lot,but i only learned one thing that oh wait never mind. I would like to find out myself what kind of frog it is but I'm glad you know what kind of frog it is,but you don't need to tell us about the green skin. We would be able to find that out our selfs because well thats kind I'm not sure but thats why there called green frogs. LOVE it though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like how you gave the fact that you can tell it is a green frog

It would be cool if you guys did a sketch don't you think :)

i love it

I never knew that a Green Frog is identified by a rounded snout and that its color can vary so much - good work finding written evidence to match your great photos of the frog. I wonder what the egg mass really looks like?

Nice find with the green frog! The eggs in the photo are actually from a spotted salamander though. Green frogs probably won't start calling and breeding for a few more weeks yet.

We really couldn't decide which it was. We sat there for acouple minutes and we thought it was a Green Frog Egg Mass.

This site is really awesome because you guys sound really smart. I like the part when you guys said," Females usually lay 1,000 to 4,000 eggs on the water surfaces." That was some good description.

love the frog pic so cool to know that there is a diffrent kind of frog out there in the vernal pool. never seen manny out there jest a few frogs seen out there this year in 2015! oh and i love your picher the one you drew. i also realy like your egg mass pichers
