3feet from the stream, brown zone 4
Medium, brown frog with dark brown spots. It has a buff-colored ridge down either side of its back, with a dark brown ridge running down across the spots on its back. It was next to a creek.
These frogs have been very numerous this summer. I believe I have the correct ID, but would like confirmation.
