Saw this in the first trail we went through.
Frog found in Eaton Canyon on September 9,2014 at 2:48 p.m.
This Pseudacris cadaverina was found while hiking at Etiwanda Nature preserve when it was 80 degrees with no cloud cover at 11:32am. We had to go off the main trail and find a stream where the different species of frog are found at different parts (ie upstream vs downstream). This Pseudacris cadaverina is a lighter color because they are adapted to blend in with the light boulders (seen in picture #3). The key features to tell it is a Pseudacris cadaverina is the light color, the wide mouth, thick toe pads, and lack of a eye stripe (seen in picture #2). Also caught is a juvenile P. cadaverina (seen in picture #4). If you notice the diffirence in size; the juvenile is only half the size of my distal phalanx. The juvenile probably just recently undergone metamorphosis from a tadpole.
Ignore present Taricha torosa. Pseudacris cadaverina organism found up alcove of waterfall.
10+ young Pseudacris cadaverina occupying same pools.
