In a rocky, shady, steep creek bed
There was a full chorus of cricket frogs calling at this pond last night. However I didn't hear any other amphibian species all night.
A. crepitans found in puddle near swamp in Hawkins Texas. Interesting to note that a snake of the genus Nerodia was captured in the same puddle, possibly in search of these frogs.
A. crepitans was found inside of a bottle that had been thrown on the bank of a pond. It had apparently gotten inside and was unable to get itself out.
Cricket frogs, genus Acris, are small, North American frogs of the family Hylidae. They are more aquatic than other members of the family, and are generally associated with permanent bodies of water with surface vegetation. The common and scientific names refer to their call, which resembles that of a cricket.
