Description

A woman I know has a friend who took this photo. Her friend wanted to know what kind of frog it was, so she sent the picture to me. This is the reply I got when I asked for more info:

"They saw him today, 4/3/14, just after 1:30 pm just before the rain started in a burrow next to the neighboring farmers pasture off Rec Rd 3 in Bonham."
