At the risk of coming across as overly paranoid, I'm pretty sure it's illegal to handle these without a permit. You might want to just have the in situ shot up here.

Good call. I think it's possible the woman handling the frog had a permit, since she was a biologist participating in a project to document species in the area. But I'll take it down to be safe.

Yeah, Tammy (the woman handling the frog) is a professional wildlife biologist with a permit for handling CA Red-legged Frogs. Definitely good to note that handling threatened species like this is a fineable offense, though.
