I've seen them upstream here at Yosemite Falls. This stream behind the Visitor's Center was alive with life. A spectacular site.

Description

This frog has a white belly with yellow legs and has an olive green body with darker spots. We read that it is rare to find it south of the highway 80. We found it in the North Fork of the American River just south of highway 80.

Conservation Summary

  • Globally
    near threatened (NT) (Source: IUCN Red List)
    vulnerable (G3) (Source: NatureServe)
    Vulnerable. Occurs in California and western Oregon; substantial ongoing decline, apparently due to habitat alteration, impacts of airborne agrochemicals, and/or effects of exotic species, and because recolonization abilities may be greatly restricted by local extirpation patterns.
