Habitat: To the left and a few feet away from the raised Cedar Trail walkway. The few feet surrounding the frog did not have any grasses or bushes growing up out of the water like the rest of the surrounding area.

Observations: Frog had a light green body, becoming lighter around the face and nose. Two ridges extended out from the nose back towards the face, but ended at the eyes.
