Description

My friends and I were exploring the field after a fire wiped out the whole thing. We were going up one of the little canals in the field hen I saw something jump. I thought it was a treefrog at first but boy was it something better. I guess a lot of these guys went underground by the swamps and survived during the fire. I was very happy not only to find this guy but to find out that amphibians, very fragile animals, were able to survive. I know we are in a drought but I decide to use a bottle of water to make his area wet. Most of it was dry but there were some damp places.
