Description

On our way back from MN we stopped in Tucson, AZ and drove through Tucson Mountain County Park, beautiful scenery and I'm sure plenty of herps at a different time of day, but at least we got to see these threatened frogs in a pond at the nature center. It was hard to keep the kids from trying to catch them. I believe this is a reintroduced population of these frogs since they no longer exist in the wild in this area.
