Froglet
Her transformation from a Tadpole into a Pacific Treefrog (which took about 12 weeks) is almost complete, but notice that a tiny tail still remains.
Photographed in Fern Canyon in August 2008.
Red Rocks, Nevada.


Some frogs that live in higher altitudes or in colder places might take a whole winter to go through the tadpole stage.

I was exploring along the Verde River, I heard
a SPLASH that sounded much louder than what a
Canyon Treefrog would have made.

In the PAC-NW, there's a frog species called
the "Tailed Frog." Its tail remains attached
to its body for the rest of its life.

This is a simply EXCELLENT photo of a treefrog! You can even make out the toes on
its hind feet.

Thanks for the comment Larry. I'm not familiar wih the tailed frogs. Are they bigger than freefrogs?

Please keep in mind, I'm no frog expert.
They are 2.5 to 5 centimeters long, and
could possibly be mistaken for a treefrog
with a tail on it.

Tailed frogs have NO vocalisation. Besides
the PAC-NW, there is one species called the
Rocky Mountain Tailed Frog.

Please, CLICK for more information.
