Blanchard’s Cricket Frog

I would never have noticed this little frog had it not been for the keen eye of my lovely boyfriend. This little guy was so well camouflaged that even when I bent down next to the murky puddle he was by it was hard to spot him. Blanchard’s cricket frogs can be found throughout much of the Midwest, from Colorado to Texas. They are the most aquatic treefrog in North America. Unfortunately, they are considered a threatened or endangered in some states, though not at the federal level, due to habitat loss.
