The Wood Frog, Lithobates sylvaticus, is easily identifiable from its raccoon mask around its eyes.
The Spring Peeper, Pseudacris crucifer, is the only tree frog in Rhode Island so it is easy to identify.

Eastern Spadefoot Toad, Scaphiopus holbrookii, is the only spadefoot toad in the state so just look for the toad with a spade on its rear feet.
