Description

Female Mink Frog (I think). This image was even used in Nature NB's Frog poster. This frog illustrates what I feel is the prototypical colouration pattern for Mink Frogs. Based on vocalizations, I had a very active breeding population of Mink Frogs at this location for over a decade with well over a dozen males vocalizing at the season's peak. We lived there from spring 1999 to October 2013. The thing is, I don't see the webbing on her hind leg reaching the last joint on her longest toe. Or do I?

Description from Wikipedia

The mink frog (Lithobates septentrionalis) is a small species of frog native to the United States and Canada. They are so named for their scent, which reportedly smells like a mink. The scent is more akin to that of rotting onions to those unfamiliar with mink. It is also sometimes referred to as the north frog.
