Who you calling corrugated, huh? These mostly aquatic frogs are called Corrugated Water Frogs because of their wrinkly skin. But this isn't evident in all individuals. This one looks quite smooth. Note the eyes that are nearly on top of the head, to better see you with when the frog is floating in the water.
