Pig Frog

The American Bullfrog, Lithobates catesbeianus, is the largest frog in the North America. It looks very similar to the Green Frog, Lithobates clamitans, but the dorsal ridge wraps around the tympanum while the Green Frog’s dorsal ridge is incomplete and does not extend all the way to its rear. The American Bullfrog is also very similar to the Pig Frog, Lithobates grylio, but the Pig Frog has bolder spots / stripes on the back of its thighs while the Bullfrog has light spots.

The Cricket Frogs look really similar but there’s a few ways to tell them apart. The Southern Cricket Frog, Acris gryllus, has a more pointed snout while the Northern Cricket Frog, Acris crepitans, has a more blunt snout.
