Spring Peeper

spring peeper frog photo How to Identify: 3/4 - 1 1/4 in. (1.9-3.2 cm). They are tan to brown to gray depending on thier surroundings. Peepers have a dark, often imperfect, "x" on the back; a plain belly and large toe pads.

Habitat: Wooded areas with temporary or semi-permanent ponds or swamps or marshes.

Did you Know. . . that in winter, peepers' bodies freeze--but their cells don't rupture because of the concentrated sugars in them. These sugars act as a kind of natural anti-freeze.

Breeding: March through May.

Voice: A high ascending "peep," sometimes with a short trill; chorus resembles the jingling of bells. To listen to a spring peeper, click HERE.
