The Wood Frog is an amphibian that is very easy to distinguish because of its coloring. They are found in the United States and in Alaska.
The Wood Frog is very easy to distinguish because of the marks on its face. The marks across the Wood Frogs eyes looks like a black mask. Its body is brown, green, gray or even red.
The female Wood Frog will have a brighter colored body than the male. Most of the Wood Frogs will get between 1.5 inches to 3.25 inches long.
The Wood Frog is used to cold weather and they have adapted to being cold. During the winter, they stop breathing and their heart will stop beating. This allows them to go to a very low temperature without dying.
The Wood Frog also has something in their body that is an antifreeze substance, and this stops the frog from having their bodies to be frozen. Even though ice will form on the Wood Frogs body, they will thaw out and begin feeding and mating with other frogs again.
Since the Wood Frog is used to the cold, it is found in places like Alaska, the Northeast, the Arctic Circle and other cold areas. This frog has learned to live in cold climates like other animals from the Arctic Circle.
During the winter months, adult Wood Frogs will usually find a bunch of leaves or other forest debris to hide in. They will stay there so that they can hide from their predators.
Wood Frogs will eat things like spiders, slugs, snails, worms and other insects. They will also eat algae and plant matter if they are a tadpole or a larva. They will also eat the larvae of other amphibians that are found in the water.
The predators of the wood frog are snapping turtle, skunks, birds, coyotes, foxes, snakes and other animals. The tadpoles of the Wood Frog also have to face being eaten by salamanders, wood turtles, beetles and other Wood Frogs.
The Wood Frogs start looking for a mate in March and they do this by making a sound that sounds like a duck quacking. When the female hears this, she will go to the frog.
The female Wood Frog can lay up to 3,000 eggs and they will hatch within 30 days.
It takes a Wood Frog up to two years to become an adult Wood Frog.
Most Wood Frogs will live up to three years, but some will die much sooner than that.
