Green Frog - Lithobates clamitans I found this frog, along with others, in a really gross, tiny, vernal pool. The water was nearly orange and the surface covered in scum and pollen.  I felt bad for the frogs, but there isn&#039;t much water in the woods right now, so this is probably the best that they could find.  I also saw a bunch of different animal tracks on the edge of the pool and have the impression that the woodland creatures in the area view this spot as a frog buffet, so I doubt these frogs will survive long if they remain in this spot.<br />
