Pickerel Frog (Lithobates palustris) Having a Mud Bath Another frog rescued from muddy pits (some residential construction) at the edge of a dense mixed hardwood/coniferous forest in NW Georgia (Gordon County), US. July 17, 2018. It seemed rather happy in the mud, and I felt bad about having to take its new home!<br />
