Description

Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge
72F, 70% Hum, Cloudy

Moderately large bullfrog, seen with only the head poking up from the water about twenty feet out from an observation platform, in a reed-y area within a larger relatively open section of the marsh (most of the surrounding waters are densely filled with reeds).

Not heard calling (we didn't hear any bullfrogs for the duration of our time at Anahuac, about two hours), and didn't visibly move for the ten minutes or so that we were on the platform.
