Saw this frog on some rocks in the Angeles National Forest. It moved onto a tree when, which is when I took its photo.
These frogs live in the front of my house, in the giant birds-of-paradise plants. They despise water. When it rains, they jump on the porch and come into the house beneath the front door. Once inside, they can't find their way out again and I have to catch them.
Tadpole. Genus confirmed by Vance Vredenburg, species inferred based on range.
When I last visited this pool of slow following water, I found it full of tadpoles, but no frogs. Didn't know what species at the time. That was on 7/15. This day, as I looked around the pool and surrounding vegetation, I found at least a dozen of these juveniles.
Two in the same small area.
its near the Anaxyrus borea western toad. I had to catch it in a bottle to get the pic. It is circled in red
Found this single one while fishing Hidden Lake
