07.30.2021 Frog Friday 30+5

For a change, here is a green frog-Lithobates clamitans.  The vast majority of frogs I see in Poor Farm Swamp are bullfrogs so this was something different.

So bumpy.  It must have been a chilly morning.  The most easily identifiable difference between L. clamitans and L.catesbianus is the ridge.  On a bullfrog it curves around the tympanum but here on the green frog it goes down the back.

    When I saw his scientific name, the Litho- portion caught my attention. I wondered if there was a relationship between its name and Lithos — the plant known as living rocks . Sure enough. Wiki says thatLithobates is derived from litho- (stone) and the Greek for one that treads — a rock climber! He looks rather like he’s trying to get a grip on those lily pads!
