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! This particular frog thought it could hide in the mud! So cute!
The pickerel frog is a small North American frog, characterized by the appearance of seemingly "hand-drawn" squares on its dorsal surface.
