Upland Chorus Frogs (Pseudacris feriarum) Mating couple in a shallow puddle (with larvae) on a dirt road in a clearing in a dense mixed hardwood/coniferous forest in NW Georgia (Gordon County), US. March 18, 2018.<br />

The spawn of this lovely pair were, hopefully, saved during our rescue mission this past spring! All spawn in these vernal pools were relocated to new puddles during road repairs!<br />

  1. Cool find! Working on the new generation when the other new generation is still developing? Posted 11 months ago
    1. Probably so. I'm not great at tadpole identification, but those could very well be another species. There are multiple species of frogs/toads/salamanders in these pools in Spring! Posted 11 months ago
  2. The whole family is there! :-) Posted 11 months ago
    1. Yes! Probably some other families too! :D A lot of different frogs are in these pools in spring! Posted 11 months ago
  3. From today's post on Facebook:

    What's more important? Speed? Opportunity? Stamina? Ritual? Attraction? Offering a gift? Stealth? Pheromones? Deceit? Love? The natural world is full of weird, fascinating, endearing, and even alarming mating rituals. The specifics vary between species, and can include the male giving gifts, performing a dance, or simply dominating the female. However they do "it", the goal is always the same: reproduction. One thing is for sure though, mating in nature really is wild. In honor of Valentine's Day, we hope you enjoy this video of creatures in nature who are clearly, "in love"! #JungleDragon
